Wife of Binance Executive, Tigran Gambaryan reports Nigerian govt to U.S. Parliament | read details 

 

Yuki Gambaryan, the wife of the detained Binance Holdings Limited executive, Tigran Gambaryan, has told the US Parliament that the Nigerian Government kept his husband, Tigran Gambaryan, in Kuje prison together with Boko Haram ter-rorists.

Yuki, represented by her congressman, Rich McCormick, spoke at Tuesday’s House Foreign Affairs Committee roundtable on Americans detained abroad.

She alleged that her husband who “helps countries navigate the notoriously prickly finance, crime, and compliance world has spent 65 days in custody over unfounded charges”.

 

Recall that Gambaryan and his colleague, Nadeem Anjarwalla, were detained on February 26 following an investigation into Binance’s activities in Nigeria.

While Anjarwalla fled from custody, Gambaryan and Binnace were arraigned on April 8, on five count charges bordering on money laundering.

 

Gambaryan’s wife said,” My husband and the father of our two young children, Tigrin, has been in Nigerian custody for 65 days, the longest two months of our lives. On February 25, he landed in Abuja at the Nigerian Government’s request for a financial compliance policy. This is what Tigran does. He helps countries navigate the notoriously prickly finance, crime, and compliance world.

“He spends his days investigating and pursuing criminal activity on Binance, his employer’s cryptocurrency platform. However, 24 hours after his arrival, he was arrested and detained without charge or explanation.

 

“Today, my husband sits in the notorious Kuje prison, a place that has held Militants from Islamic State and Boko Haram,”.

“Ironically, Tigran spent more than a decade as a special agent for the United States General Revolution Revenue Service, investigating issues of national security, terrorist financing, identity theft, distribution of tile pornog-raphy, tax evasion and more”.
