An interesting step has been taken regarding the $ 250 million bail document signed by Sam Bankman-Fried’s parents, as well as two other people whose identities are kept confidential. Lewis Kaplan, the judge of the case in which SBF was tried for 115 years for 8 different crimes, stated that the identities of these two people who signed the bail document could be disclosed.
Giant media organizations had petitioned
As it is known, the SBF side did not want the identities of these two people who signed the document to be disclosed for security reasons. However, a group of media organizations, including many institutions from the Wall Street Journal to Bloomberg, from the Financial Times to crypto money media platforms, wanted these names to be announced. This group also submitted a petition to Judge Kaplan on the subject.
Judge Kaplan gave time to appeal until 7 February. Media outlets claimed that it would be in the public interest to reveal the names of the two people who signed the document.
The SBF side, on the other hand, states that disclosing the names to the public will endanger the safety of these two people.
As it will be remembered, some people came to the house of SBF in California last week and stated that they wanted to enter the house. These people were blocked by the security forces.
