Interpol has issued a Red Notice for Terraform Labs co-founder Do Kwon, according to a report from Bloomberg.
A Red Notice is a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender or similar legal action.
- Kwon has yet to issue a statement via Twitter, but in prior tweets he has maintained that Terraform Labs is defending itself in multiple jurisdictions.
- It was thought that Kwon was in Singapore, where he maintains a residence, but police have confirmed that he's not there.
- Prosecutors in South Korea have previously said that Kwon was "obviously on the run" and not cooperating with investigators.
UPDATE (Sept. 26, 17:16 UTC): Added Monday tweet from Kwon.
