According to Benzinga:
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has enforced a rigorous nine-year ban on both Zhu and Davies, the brains behind Three Arrows Capital.
This action was taken after the pair was identified as breaching the Securities and Futures Act 2001 (SFA) and the associated Securities and Futures (Licensing and Conduct of Business) Regulations (SFR).
Many in the crypto community lauded the arrest of the Three Arrows Capital founder and saw it as a positive development.
