Nexo’s Sofia offices were raided by authorities and “foreign agents” in relation to financial crimes, according to local media outlet Standart News.
The report claims investigations into Nexo began several months ago after “foreign services” alerted Bulgarian authorities to suspicious transactions. It added that the nature of these transactions related to sidestepping Russian sanctions.
Standart News also made the claim that the company owners have appropriated users’ funds to the tune of billions of dollars.
More updates to follow as the situation unfolds.
