Ethereum Dev Virgil Griffith’s Attorney Files Motion to Dismiss Charges of Aiding North Korea
The motion, filed by Brian Klein, claims the indictment of Griffith doesn't "specify any alleged overt facts," and contains no actual allegation of fact.
The Ethereum developer was arrested in 2019 and charged with helping North Korea get around U.S. economic sanctions.
The federal judge also denied the Ethereum developer’s request for more details about the charges against him.
He is charged with helping North Korea circumvent sanctions through the use of crypto.
Ethereum developer Virgil Griffith is likely headed to trial on charges of violating international sanctions, after a Tuesday hearing where a federal judge clarified what's being argued.
Attorneys for Virgil Griffith want the U.S. government to specify the charges he’s facing rather than a broad claim that he violated U.S. sanctions.
