The international policing organization Interpol is officially requesting that law enforcement worldwide help locate and arrest the embattled Terra (LUNA) founder Do Kwon, according to a new report.
Bloomberg notes that South Korean prosecutors in Seoul confirmed Interpol has placed a “red notice” on Kwon.
The prosecutors requested the action earlier this month after claiming that the Terra founder’s whereabouts were unknown.
According to the policing organization, a red notice is a request to law enforcement worldwide to “locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender or similar legal action.”
Kwon, however, denies that he’s on the run, saying on Twitter that he’s “making zero effort to hide.”
“I go on walks and malls, no way none of crypto Twitter hasn’t run into me the past couple weeks.”
Kwon does not, however, name his actual location, except for saying that he’s been “writing code in [his] living room.”
The Terra founder has been accused by South Korean authorities of running a “Ponzi fraud,” namely with Terra-based decentralized finance platform Anchor Protocol, which was offering investors of algorithmic stablecoin TerraUSD (UST) returns of approximately 20%.
In May, the Terra ecosystem imploded when its stablecoin UST, lost its desired peg to the US dollar. Both UST and LUNA went to essentially zero in a matter of days, causing roughly $40 billion in damages to investors across the crypto market.
