South Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs wants Do Kwon (co-founder of Terraform Labs stablecoin provider Terraform Labs), to return his passport , according to a local media report.
On Wednesday, the arrest warrant was issued for Terra CEO and five other Terra employees.
Do Kwon along with five others, all South Korean nationals, are residing in Singapore. A South Korean court issued them an arrest warrant Wednesday and charged them with violation of the Capital Markets Act.
Five others are ordered to return passports
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in South Korea also issued an order for the five other individuals to return their passports. Munhwa reported that the order was issued after the Seoul Southern District Prosecutor’s Office for Financial and Securities Crimes demanded the passports of six people be cancelled.
The passport invalidation process can take up to a month so the prosecutors will likely pressure the six people to return their passports by the due date.
