Users of the bankrupt Canadian Bitcoin exchange QuadrigaCX continue to doubt about the death of the exchange owner (Gerald Cotten), demanding from the local authorities the body exhumation of the allegedly deceased businessman. A request was sent to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) by Miller Thomson, a law firm representing QuadrigaCX investors.
According to the official version, Cotten died as a result of an illness on December 9, 2018 in India. However, in a letter dated December 13, Miller Thomson insists that the exhumation and autopsy procedure of the former QuadrigaCX CEO is necessary because of the “contentious circumstances of Mr. Cotten’s death and significant losses” to the exchange users.
According to the authors of the letter, it is necessary to give a clear answer to the question of whether Cotten is really dead.
Earlier it was reported that the widow of the founder of the QuadrigaCX cryptocurrency exchange, Gerald Cotten, Jennifer Robertson, will transfer about $ 9 million to the auditor EY Canada, who is responsible for managing the company after its bankruptcy.
In connection with the bankruptcy of QuadrigaCX, large-scale inspections by the Canadian tax have begun. Numerous requests from law enforcement agencies and regulators will affect how much ultimately it will be able to pay creditors.
Meanwhile, the lawyer of blockchain practice at Juscutum Law Firm Alexander Sinitsa believes that QuadrigaCX bankruptcy is unlikely to help return the money to the affected customers.
