Panic As Binance Executive, Tigran Gambaryan Collapses In Court

There was panic at a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday, as detained Binance executive, Tigran Gambaryan, who is facing a money laundering charge, slumped in the open court over alleged ill-health.
 
The development occurred shortly after the matter was called for trial continuation before Justice Emeka Nwite.
As soon as the case was called by the court registrar, Gambaryan did not step forward to the dock from the back row seat where he was seated.
 
 
Justice Nwite then asked where the 2nd defendant (Gambaryan) was and one of the lawyers in the defence team, who sat beside Gambaryan, held him by the side towards the dock.
As they walked slowly to the dock, Gambaryan fell down and the lawyer assisted him to sit in the front row seat.
His lawyer, Mark Mordi, SAN, explained to the court why his client could not stand as soon as the matter was called.
Mordi said Gambaryan had been indisposed and a written application letter had been filed to notify the court of his failing.
“My lord, the case may not certainly proceed today,” he said.
