Detained Binance Executive Slumps In Court

 

There was a mild drama at a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday, as detained Binance executive, Tigran Gambaryan, slumped in court.

Gambaryan is facing a money laundering charge.

The drama occurred shortly after the matter was called for trial continuation before Justice Emeka Nwite, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

When the court registrar called the case, Mr Gambaryan did not step forward to the dock from the back row where he was seated.

Justice Nwite then asked where the second defendant (Mr Gambaryan) was, and one of the lawyers on the defence team, who sat beside him, held him by the side towards the dock.

As they walked slowly towards the dock, Mr Gambaryan fell and the lawyer assisted him into a front-row seat.

His lawyer, Mark Mordi, explained to the court as soon as the matter was called why his client could not stand when the matter was called.

Mordi said the Binance executive had been indisposed and that a written application letter had been filed to notify the court of the development.

“My lord, the case may not certainly proceed today,” he said.
