posted 25 days ago
Polish police arrested the CEO of Crypto Capital, Ivan Manuel Molina Lee, on accusations of money laundering. The crypto entrepreneur was extradited to Warsaw, Poland under police escort. Polish authorities claim that Molina Lee is wanted in Poland for “laundering dirty money for Columbian drug cartels using a cryptocurrency exchange” in amounts of up to US$400M.

Polish prosecutors claim Crypto Capital held accounts in a Polish bank and laundered illegal proceeds through the country and said “This is the largest effort by Polish prosecutors to secure losses associated with illegal activity... officers closely cooperated with Europol, Interpol and US services, including the DEA.”
