Law enforcement agencies from different countries and Interpol have been hunting for Do Kwon for several months. At first, everyone thought that Kwon was in Singapore, thereafter it became known that he had left for Europe via Dubai. According to the latest data, Do Kwon was allegedly in Serbia, but the arrest of the fugitive took place in Montenegro.
On March 23, the Minister of Internal Affairs of Montenegro, Filip Adzic, tweeted that a person with forged documents was detained at the Podgorica airport, who was positively identified as Do Kwon.
A short while later, the South Korean news agency Yonhap News Agency published an article according to which the South Korean police, using documents and photo data, identified Kwon, but are waiting for further information from Montenegro about the detainee's fingerprints.
"We checked the age, nationality and name with the identity card that the person had, and confirmed that this is the same person as CEO Kwon, with photo data,” - an employee of the National Police Department told the Yonhap News Agency.
It is reported that along with Do Kwon, his assistant Han Mo was also arrested.
However, it is not entirely clear what awaits the detainees next, because Montenegro does not have an extradition agreement with either Singapore or South Korea to extradite the criminals. But Montenegro can work within the framework of an extradition treaty with the United States. Montenegro also co-operates with Interpol.
Of course, FatMan could not leave such major news without giving attention, whilst all along collecting information to expose Do Kwon on his Twitter. He immediately posted a tweet that Do Kwon had been arrested. He also stressed and hoped that the full force of the law would come down on Kwon.
Continuing to explore the topic of Terra, FatMan found a post in which users seriously compare Do Kwon with the creator of bitcoin – Satoshi Nakomoto.
Do Kwon's arrest has become big news for the entire crypto world and has initiated the work of law enforcement agencies in several countries. We will continue our observations and inform you about the news!
