During the September 16 raid, police allegedly confiscated several shares in Bithumb Holdings owned by Bithumb Korea director Kim Byung-Geon. The seizure suit was approved by the Seoul Central District Court on September 14th.

The last police raid on the stock exchange is the third this month after an initial raid on September 2 and another raid on September 7 of alleged serious financial fraud related to Bithumb’s domestic token BXA.
By promoting the token, which was never launched or listed, Lee was allegedly involved in a scam that inflicted $ 25 million in damage to investors.
According to the industry Samjong KPMG, Who is the Bithumb Sales Supervisor? Earlier this month, he finalized a Letter of Intent (LOI) stating that he was planning to sell his own stake in Bithumb Holdings.
