According to reports, Manhattan's Judge Lewis Kaplan decided that the identities of the two people who granted Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) permission to reside at his parents' home in exchange for a $250 million bail should be made public.

A number of allegations, including fraud and money laundering, are brought against the former CEO of FTX. His trial is scheduled to begin on October 2, 2023.

According to a report by Reuters, Judge Kaplan sided with many media organizations who urged that the identities of those persons should be made public, including Bloomberg, CNBC, and The Washington Post.

The magistrate stated that because "the question posed here is fresh and an appeal is expected," the identities would stay under secrecy until at least February 7.

Bankman-Fried was briefly detained in a Bahamian jail before being deported to the US, where he was supposed to observe his cell from the inside.

However, a federal court in New York decreed that, in exchange for a $250 million bail, he might reside at his parents' home. The 30-year-old is prohibited from leaving the Northern District of California and is required to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.

His lawyers previously refused to disclose the identities of the sureties who made the bond possible, claiming that doing so would subject them to the same sort of abuse that his parents did.

Ms. Fried and Mr. Bankman, according to the attorneys, just received
