Binance Exec Prohibited Hospitalization As Nigerian Officials Flout Court Order

A new hurdle has emerged in the follow-up of Binance executive Tigran Gambaryan’s trial for money laundering in Nigeria, underscoring the rising challenges faced by the executive amidst legal turmoil. According to a recent report, despite the Nigerian court’s recent order to transfer the detained Binance exec to a hospital due to medical issues, Nigerian prison officials have ignored to do so.

Binance Exec’s Hospitalization: What’s The Scoop?

CoinGape Media earlier reported that Gambaryan experienced a medical emergency last week, fainting in the courtroom during his trial in Abuja, Nigeria. This prompted Justice Emeka Nwite to mandate Nigeria’s prison authorities to transfer the detainee to Nizayime Hospital.

However, recent reports surfacing across the market indicate that Nigeria’s Correctional Service, the entity behind the nation’s prison system, has flouted the court’s order, as per Tigran’s wife, Yuki Gambaryan. This has raised some severe questions about the authorities’ embracement of fundamental human rights.

Meanwhile, global reports also claim that Tigran suffered from malaria and a severe throat infection, amidst which he has been denied medical aid via a hospital. Instead, the Binance exec is being treated in a facility at Kuje Prison.

Speaking with DL News, Tigran’s wife stated- “I am devastated and shocked that, despite the court’s clear directive for his admission to a hospital, the authorities have not allowed him to leave the very prison causing his illness.”

Tigran’s Future Proceedings

The next court hearing is scheduled for June 14, and the Binance executive remains poised to face tax violation charges filed by Nigeria’s Federal Inland Revenue Service. Meanwhile, Tigran’s wife and attorneys continue to pray for the executive’s well-being.

Mark Mordi, Gambaryan’s legal representative, had also notified the court that his client had been unwell and was experiencing health problems. However, despite concerns over Tigran’s medical state, Nigerian prison authorities have yet to offer proper medical aid to the Binance exec.

Also, Richard Teng, Binance’s CEO, recently urged and advocated for the release of its executive, Tigran Gambaryan.
