Binance exec Tigran Gambaryan pleads not guilty as judge sends him to Nigerian prison

It took six weeks, but Tigran Gambaryan finally got to proclaim his innocence in a Nigerian courtoom.

Gambaryan, a senior US Binance executive, pleaded not guilty Monday to money laundering charges and was remanded to prison to await trial.

Gambaryan’s lawyer argued that his client should not be held responsible for Binance’s activities in the African nation because he does not have decision-making authority in the company’s business operations.

Gambaryan is the head of the crypto exchange’s financial crime compliance unit, according to his LinkedIn profile.
