Do Kwon, founder of the inglorious TerraForm Labs, already has police in 196 countries on his back. Two weeks into the global manhunt, some important clues on Do Kwon’s whereabouts have surfaced. Plus, a Discord group that consists of 4,400 people is putting forth its best efforts to track down the infamous entrepreneur. The group called UST Restitution Group (URG) is collecting clues and sharing possible scenarios to find the crypto Waldo.

Possible Runaway Scenarios for Do Kwon
According to the information shared by the UST Restitution Group (URG), Do Kwon could have fled to Dubai, UAE, Russia, Azerbaijan, or might be sailing somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea on a getaway luxury yacht. While the last scenario resembles the story of Three Arrows Capital (3AC) and their “Much WOW” boat, the most likely out of these is Dubai, UAE.
This was also confirmed by the South Korean authorities, who have evidence that Do Kwon was in Dubai about a month ago. Most likely, Dubai, UAE could have been a transition stop for the troubled TerraForm Labs CEO. Hence, the authorities have requested neighboring countries to conduct a close investigation of departures and arrivals in the last month.
Previously, South Korean authorities gave Do Kwon two weeks to hand over his international passport or it would be canceled. As the term ends today, the authorities reported to be “working on the nullification process.” Ultimately, this means Kwon won’t be able to travel across borders.
Do Kwon Deems the Accusations Illegitimate
On top of that, Do Kwon’s interview with Laura Shin for the Unchained Podcast has surfaced. The reporter addressed the elephant in the room: whether or not he feels guilty for Terra’s fiasco. Currently, the charges against Do Kwon include the violation of Capital Markets Law, fraud, and tax evasion. According to the embattled founder of the beaten-down crypto enterprise, the South Korean authorities went out of their jurisdiction, as “crypto is not securities.”
Kwon went on to say that he has never seen the arrest warrant. However, journalist Laura Shin remarked that the PDF copy of the arrest warrant was definitely sent to him. In response to this, the Terra (LUNA) founder explained he never opened the file.
Ultimately, the worldwide manhunt for Terra Luna’s Do Kwon is heating up, as police worldwide and dedicated lynch mobs are after the cocky leader of the crypto Frankenstein. “The highly politicized” case, as Kwon calls it, can answer some questions about the most hard-hitting crypto crash ever, sending over $60 billion of investors’ money down the drain.
