According to Strauss, the accused continues to cooperate with law enforcement agencies, and the newly revealed circumstances of the case require additional investigation. The court approved the prosecutor’s request and postponed the sentencing for six months until May 14, 2021.
This is not the first time that Ignatov’s verdict has been delayed due to cooperation in the case of organizing a high-level Ponzi scheme, which, according to preliminary data, cost the project investor billions of dollars. Initially, the main promoter of OneCoin was supposed to receive a verdict back in July, but then the hearing on the case was postponed to November for a similar reason..
We will remind, Konstantin Ignatov was detained at the Los Angeles airport in March 2019. The US prosecutor’s office accuses him of acting as a personal assistant to OneCoin founder Ruzha Ignatova (Konstantin’s sister), whose location is currently unknown..
Ignatov pleaded guilty to several counts. He faces up to 90 years in prison. Together with him, Mark Scott, attorney at OneCoin, pleaded guilty to laundering $ 400 million.
The Cointelegraph first reported potential OneCoin scam in 2015.
