Voyager creditors serve SBF a Subpoena to appear in court for a ‘remote deposition’

Representatives for Voyager’s Unsecured Creditors have requested that former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, provide documents and appear in court remotely next week for a deposition.

A court filing on Feb. 18 in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, stated that Bankman-Fried has been served a “Subpoena to Testify at a Deposition in a Bankruptcy Case.”

It was served by the Official Committee for the Unsecured Creditors of Voyager Digital Holdings, a bankrupt crypto lending exchange, who stated that he must appear for the “remote deposition” on Feb. 23.

It also stated that Bankman-Fried produce all requested “documents and communications” no later than Feb. 20.

This comes after it was revealed in a Feb. 6 court filing that Voyager’s lawyers had served a subpoena to Bankman-Fried as well as Alameda CEO, Caroline Ellison, FTX co-founder, Gary Wang and FTX’s head of product, Ramnic Arora.

All individuals were required to provide the requested information by Feb. 17.

Judge John Dorsey had previously authorised FTX debtors under bankruptcy court rules to issue subpoenas for information and documents from former FTX colleagues and family members of Bankman-Fried.

It was revealed on Feb.16 that Bankman-Fried could potentially have his bail revoked after Judge Lewis Kaplan stated that there was “probable cause” to believe that he engaged in attempted witness tampering.

Previous court documents filed on Feb. 3 also revealed that Bankman-Fried’s holding company, Emergent Fidelity Technologies, filed for bankruptcy protection.
