Following a Puerto Rico court ruling, Avraham Eisenberg is expected to languish in jail awaiting trial. Justice fears that Eisenberg, who was arrested following his price manipulation on the Mango Markets protocol, will try to flee if ever he were released. A situation that contrasts very sharply with the treatment given to Sam Bankman-Fried.
Mango Markets manipulator soon imprisoned
The profile ofAvraham Eisenberg, Mango Markets manipulator recently arrested in Puerto Rico, seems to worry the judicial authorities. And for good reason, the one nicknamed “Avi” should await his trial in prison.
At a hearing following Eisenberg’s arrest, a U.S. magistrate judge said that it was impossible to guarantee the individual’s presence at his trial if he were to be released soon. The court also mentioned the possibility for Avi to escape to another country, the latter having a priori family ties in various countries located outside American jurisdiction but also because he has dual nationality.
Therefore, Puerto Rico court issues detention order for Avraham Eisenbergspecifying that the latter risked “ a long period of incarceration » if he were to be sentenced for the 2 counts of which he is the target, namely for fraud and for manipulation of raw materials.

According to the court document issued on January 4, Eisenberg was already known to justiceincluding for: history of violence or use of weapons, history of alcohol or drug abuse, criminal history or for participation “in criminal activities during the period of probation, parole or supervision”.
Although the situation in which Eisenberg finds himself can be considered justified, we can only underline the contrast with the preferential treatment granted to Sam Bankman-Friedthe former CEO of FTX, who is currently living with his parents following his bail, which reached the staggering sum of $250 million.
As a reminder, following the price manipulation carried out on Mango Markets, Avi had decided to return $67 million of his loot to Protocol, which still left him with $37 million. According to the document issued by the court, these funds are now untraceable.
