South Korea Plans A Key Arrest Relating To Terra (LUNA) Crisis

The Terra (LUNA) explosion was one of the devastating events in the crypto space last year. Investors have lost most of their billions of dollars of funds, and the prices of other crypto assets have plummeted.

Subsequently, South Korean prosecutors investigated the crisis. As a result, they have arrested what is said to be an important player linked to the collapse of the Terra Ecosystem (LUNA).

Prosecutors Arrest Ex-CEO of TMON

South Korean prosecutors recently issued an arrest warrant for the former CEO of e-commerce giant TMON, who has been identified as “Mr. John.” A’. Dong-AIlbo local news agency. informed this is a recent move by the Seoul Southern District Prosecutor’s Office.

The statement alleges that the former executive received billions of South Korean won in Terra (LUNA) token bribes. The funds were intended for the implementation of LUNA as a payment method on the TMON platform.

In addition, the broker, whose name has not been released, was involved in a bribery incident and will be arrested. The report notes that the revision of the arrest warrant will take place on February 17.

The prosecutor’s office believes that Terra’s management made serious mistakes in managing operations with a crypto asset.

After alleged bribery, the former CEO of TMON got TMON to publish several promotional articles about Terra. He also introduced the use of LUNA as a payment method on the platform.
