The US Attorney's Office asked the court to impose restrictions on CZ's movements

  • The US Attorney's Office asked a federal judge to approve travel restrictions on Changpeng Zhao.
  • The former CEO of Binance may have his passports and travel documents confiscated.

US prosecutors have asked a federal judge to impose additional travel restrictions on former Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao.

In a statement filed on February 23, 2024 in a US court, prosecutors asked Judge Brian Tsuchida to approve a motion clarifying the terms of Zhao's release on bail..

Prosecutors said CZ must remain in the U.S. until sentencing and report any domestic travel at least three days in advance.

The report also said the defendant must surrender his current Canadian passport to a third party, who must retain control of the document and accompany Zhao on any travel where identification documents are required.

In addition, prosecutors are demanding that the former Binance CEO “surrender all other valid and expired passports and travel documents to his lawyer.”

Let us recall that we previously reported that Changpeng Zhao tried to travel to the United Arab Emirates at the end of 2023 using Binance.US shares as collateral.
