While the judge in charge of the FTX case had shown himself in favor of the disclosure of the identity of the 2 anonymous individuals who participated in the release on bail of Sam Bankman-Fried, the person concerned appealed so that their names be kept secrets. His lawyer had previously said that the disclosure of these could harm the individuals concerned.
Sam Bankman-Fried fights against the revelation of the identity of his saviors
Can we hope that light will be shed on the identity of the 2 individuals who participated in the release of Sam Bankman-Fried for the sum of 250 million dollars ? In any case, the latter fights so that their names remain secret.
While Judge Lewis Kaplan in charge of the case had responded favorably to a request from various media (including Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal) last month, which had asked that the names be made public, Sam Bankman-Fried has just appealed this decision.

Indeed, although the judge had initially responded positively to the common request, the motion concerning the anonymity of the 2 individuals could be contested until February 7, which was done. Now, following Sam Bankman-Fried’s appeal, an answer must be provided before February 14.
In total, no less than 250 million dollars were invested to free Sam Bankman-Fried, making it the largest release on bail in history. The vast majority of the funds concerned come from the parents of Sam Bankman-Friedthe 2 anonymous co-signers having paid 500,000 and 200,000 dollars respectively.
It remains to be seen what decision will be made by February 14, but it seems that Sam Bankman-Fried himself contributes to the sabotage of his own defense, in particular by trying to contact certain FTX employees via encrypted messaging. Justice has therefore decided to prohibit him from using these communication channels and the former CEO of FTX will now have his communications under surveillance.
