The Bahamas’ attorney general, Ryan Pinder, said in a statement that FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried will be extradited to the United States on Wednesday.”The Foreign Minister, who is also the Minister in charge of the Extradition Act, signed the Warrant of Surrender for Sam Bankman Fried today. This allows the subject to be extradited to the United States of America,” according to a statement. During his first hearing after being arrested, Bankman-Fried stated his intention to fight extradition. He allegedly changed his mind after a judge denied him bail within days of being imprisoned. On December 12, 2022, he was arrested after US prosecutors indicted him on eight different counts, including wire fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and violating campaign finance laws.
