Terraform Labs CFO Extradited to South Korea
Han, who had close ties with Terraform Labs co-founder Do Kwon, encountered legal issues. He was arrested at a Montenegrin airport in March, charged with using forged documents during travel.
The extradition marks a pivotal moment for South Korean authorities in the ongoing investigation into the collapse of Terraform Labs, which profoundly impacted Terra (LUNA) investors worldwide. Teraform Labs CFO’s return to South Korea follows a four-month prison term he served in Montenegro. Therefore, it demonstrates the seriousness of global jurisdictions addressing fraud within the crypto sector.
Montenegro’s Ministry of Justice confirmed the extradition through an official statement on X. Moreover, it emphasized the country’s role in upholding justice across borders.
“The state of Montenegro has today acted upon the request of South Korea, and by the decision of the Ministry of Justice, handed over Han Chang-joon to the competent authorities of his home country,” Montenegro’s Ministry of Justice said.
