On March 23, 2023, Do Kwon was apprehended in Montenegro. He was arrested while he was preparing to board a private jet bound for Dubai at Podgorica Airport. A video capturing Kwon being escorted out of the Montenegrin court while handcuffed gained significant attention online.

In recent developments, the Montenegro court granted Do Kwon’s release on bail. The court also approved his bail request of 400,000 euros ($428,000). Since his arrest, both South Korean and U.S. regulators have sought Kwon’s extradition. This was in relation to the collapse of his multi-billion-dollar cryptocurrency enterprise in May of the previous year.

Now, according to the latest reports, Terra’s boss has been sentenced to four months in jail in the Montenegro document forgery case.

Do Kwon sentenced to 4 months in jail

Terra’s boss has received a four-month jail sentence from a Montenegrin court after being convicted of document forgery.

The court in the capital city of Podgorica ruled that, as part of the verdict, two Costa Rican passports, two Belgian passports, and two identity cards associated with Kwon and Han were seized.

Senior prosecutor Dan Sunghan had earlier stated that Do Kwon may face a substantial prison sentence. He stated that it could potentially span a significant portion of his life. The prosecutor clarified that it is legally permissible for an individual to be tried and sentenced in both jurisdictions for distinct charges.
