EFCC Operatives Produce Binance Executive In Court

Gambaryan was ushered into the court by heavily armed operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. He is the second defendant in the matter.

Head of Financial Crime Compliance at Binance, Tigran Gambaryan, has arrived at the Federal High Court in Abuja for his arraignment on charges of money laundering.

The Nigerian authorities detained Gambaryan and Binance’s regional manager for Africa, Nadeem Anjarwalla, on February 28.

In the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/115/2024, Binance was accused of failing to register with the Federal Inland Revenue Service for the purpose of paying all relevant taxes administered by the service.

Although Anjarwalla escaped from the custody of the office of the national security adviser (ONSA), both executives, alongside Binance, are expected to be charged in court by the federal government for tax evasion and money laundering on Thursday.

Wearing a black T-shirt on green pants, Gambaryan was brought into court at about 9:19 am by officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He is the second defendant in the matter.

Procedings are underway as of the time of filing this report.
