From Richard Teng, Binance CEO: Tigran Gambaryan is Innocent and Must Be Released | Binance Blog

As you may be aware, one of our beloved colleagues, Tigran Gambaryan, continues to be held by the government in Nigeria for more than 70 days. There has been much public commentary on this episode, and I wanted to take this opportunity to provide the facts so that the global community’s perception may not be distorted unfairly. I also feel that it’s time to speak out about this issue on behalf of the global business community. To invite a company’s mid-level employees for collaborative policy meetings, only to detain them, has set a dangerous new precedent for all companies worldwide.

Finally, it is important to note that Tigran did not go to Nigeria as a “decision-maker,” nor a “negotiator.” He was merely acting as a functional expert in financial crime and capacity building in policy discussions.
