Hours before his arrival to the US, CNN dropped this piece:
Sam Bankman-Fried will be extradited to the United States Wednesday night, Bahamas Attorney General Sen. Ryan Pinder confirmed.
Bankman-Fried will be extradited after the Foreign Minister of the Bahamas signed a warrant of surrender allowing his extradition to the United States, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Bahamas confirmed in a statement.
Earlier, lawyers for Bankman-Fried were negotiating with federal prosecutors in New York on a bail arrangement that would enable him to avoid detention, people familiar with the matter told CNN.
FTX crypto exchange founder Bankman-Fried, who oversaw his now-bankrupt empire from a luxury compound in the Bahamas, is expected to return as early as Wednesday to the United States.
In a hearing Wednesday morning, his lawyer in the Bahamas told the court that Bankman-Fried had agreed to extradition to the US, where federal prosecutors have charged him with orchestrating “one of the biggest financial frauds in American history.”
🚨BREAKING: @SBF_FTX has agreed to be extradited to the US and will be arriving either tonight or tomorrow. Two sources have informed @FoxNews he’s expected to be released on bail per pre-conditions his lawyer made with SDNY prosecutors in exchange for agreeing to extradition.
