SBF Remote Witness Requested by Voyager Unsecured Creditors Committee on February 23


Voyager's Unsecured Creditors have asked Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) and other top executives from FTX and Alameda Research to submit paperwork and virtually show up in court for a deposition the following week.

According to a document filed in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, SBF got a subpoena on February 18 ordering them to present at a bankruptcy deposition that would be taking place.

The Official Committee for the Unsecured Creditors of Voyager Digital Holdings, a failed crypto loan exchange, presented him with a subpoena asking him to appear for the "remote deposition" on February 23.

The agreement also required SBF to submit all communications and paperwork by February 20 upon request. In a court document from February 6, the attorneys for Voyager also disclosed that they had already served subpoenas on SBF, Alameda CEO Caroline Ellison, FTX co-founder Gary Wang, and the business's head of product Ramnic Arora. The SBF team had to turn over important documents by February 17 per the subpoena.

Judge John Dorsey had already given the go-ahead for FTX debtors to serve subpoenas on Bankman-family Fried's members and former FTX coworkers in order to obtain information and documents from them.

Today, SBF is likewise subject to severe oversight when out on bond. The former FTX director's bail may be withdrawn if he willfully disobeyed the court order, the judge warned on February 17.

Attorneys had previously accused Bankman-Fried in letters specifically of deliberately utilizing a VPN to watch the Super Bowl. This caused others to worry that he would be given a loose house arrest and the chance to sway witnesses' evidence before the trial.
