FTX News: Sam Bankman-Fried Faces Investigations Amid New Bail Restrictions

FTX News: Former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried is nearing an agreement with US prosecutors on new bail conditions after Judge Kaplan asked both parties to present their proposals, said lawyers for Sam Bankman-Fried.

According to a letter filed on March 17, Sam Bankman-Fried’s lawyer Christian Everdell both parties are closed to resolution and will present the Court with a proposed order outlining new bail conditions by next week. The lawyers requested specific interim modifications to the proposed bail conditions by the U.S. DOJ prosecutors on March 3.

Sam Bankman-Fried requires access to the FTX transactional database (the “AWS Database”) provided to the defense as part of the criminal discovery, prosecutors agree with the interim modification.

DOJ proposed limiting access to digital devices by Sam Bankman-Fried, providing a flip phone and laptop with limited access to only whitelisted websites. The DOJ prosecutors earlier accused SBF of witnessing tampering after he used encrypted messaging apps and VPN to contact FTX employees and access other websites.
