Kwon had been fleeing from authorities for months before entering South Korea and then fleeing to Singapore in the months leading to Terra’s crash in May 2022. In September 2022, South Korean prosecutors asked Interpol to place him on the agency’s red alert list across its 195 member nations; they also revoked his passport. Furthermore, in February this year, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) sued Do Kwan and his company Terraform Labs for “orchestrating a multi-billion dollar crypto asset securities fraud” but his attorneys recently asked the judge to dismiss this action claiming that these claims of SEC were unwarranted.
