According to a post from Filip Adzic, minister of the interior of Montenegro, an individual suspected of being Terra Luna co-founder Do Kwon has been arrested within the territory of the Balkan nation on Mar. 23. Since the announcement was first made, local news outlet Vijesti has confirmed that the Twitter account that made the announcement is from the minister of the interior of Montenegro and that the individual arrested was a South Korean national.
"Montenegrin police have detained a person suspected of being one of the most wanted fugitives, South Korean citizen Do Kwon, co-founder and CEO of Singapore-based Terraform Labs."
As told by Adzic, an individual suspected of being the former "cryptocurrency king" was detained at the Podgorica airport with "falsified documents," and authorities are awaiting official confirmation of identity. Montenegro is geographically south of Serbia and shares borders with the country. Since Dec. 2022, South Korean prosecutors have alleged that Kwon was hiding in Serbia, where no extradition agreement exists with South Korea. On Sept. 26, 2022, an Interpol red notice was issued for the arrest of Kwon for his alleged role in the collapse of the $40 billion Terra Luna (LUNC) and Terra USD (USTC) ecosystem in May 2022. He is also wanted by regulatory authorities in South Korea, Singapore, and the U.S.
