Fallen crypto guru Sam Bankman-Fried is likely to be placed on suicide watch when moved to a tiny cell in his hellhole jail in the Bahamas, a prison official has told DailyMail.com exclusively.
The former CEO of collapsed currency exchange FTX – who takes medication for depression – remains under evaluation in the maximum security sickbay and is expected to be there until the end of next week.
His next move inside notorious His Majesty’s Prison Fox Hill will be decided by the jail’s Classification Board and a medical assessment.
‘The board assesses an inmate’s risk and also their needs,’ the jail spokeswoman said. ‘It will decide when Bankman-Fried is clear to join the regular prison population and that would mean him being in an individual cell.
‘They are roughly 8ft by 10ft. Some have bathroom facilities, but many do not.’
