FTX’s bankruptcy court attorneys have requested permission from trial judge John Dorsey to question Sam Bankman-Fried’s family members, especially his parents.
According to the news of Bloomberg from the US media, SBF’s father, Joseph Bankman, a law professor, gave some advice to FTX employees about tax advantages, while brother Gabriel did lobbying activities from a luxury office in Washington. Anne Barbara Fried received funding from FTX for certain political movements. It is known that the SBF made serious donations, especially to the Democratic Party side.
The first target is a $16 million house…
In the evaluation made in the news, it was stated that none of such details actually concern FTX lawyers, and that the lawyers turned entirely to the funds these people received and to the assets from FTX, which were stated to be in their hands. As it is known, the most important of these assets is the 16.4 million dollar luxury house in the Bahamas where SBF’s parents stayed… Again, the luxury office in Washington, which brother Gabriel bought for lobbying activities, is one of the assets targeted by lawyers.
The family’s lawyers, on the other hand, had stated that they had been in the process of returning the acquired assets for a while.
As it is known, the bankruptcy court recently confiscated many assets belonging to SBF, especially Robinhood shares worth 500 million dollars.
