The legal representatives disclosed the situation to the court in a letter, highlighting that Gambaryan could die in detention.

Partner C.J. Caleb wrote the letter, addressed to the Deputy Chief Registrar of the Federal High Court.

A report from the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) noted that the letter was dated May 23.

Further, the defense counsel sought a provision of medical treatment for Binance executive Gambaryan at Nizamiye Hospital.

Caleb recounted how the Binance staff slumped in prison on Wednesday, May 22.

Though healthcare personnel gave him intravenous (IV) malaria treatment, Gambaryan’s health condition is still critical.

So, the attorney called for comprehensive health attention for him.

A part of the letter reads: “Please be informed that the 2 Defendant who is an American citizen and remanded at the Kuje Medium Correctional Facility is very ill and requires comprehensive medical attention at the best available hospital within the jurisdiction of this honorable court. The applicant broke down yesterday and the medical staff gave him Intravenous treatment for malaria.

Also, the lawyer mentioned that Binance executive Gambaryan could die since “malaria is a severe disease for American citizens”.

Additionally, the attorney pointed out that the Kuje facility is currently under renovation, making it unconducive for Gambaryan to stay.

Binance Executive Gambaryan Collapsed During A Court Trial

Recall that Gambaryan faced a trial over charges of money laundering on Wednesday, May 22. However, he slumped in the courtroom due to health issues.

Moreover, his lawyer, Mark Mordi (SAN), had earlier notified the court of his client’s health problem. Also, he requested an adjournment for the trial.

Though the defense counsel pushed for bail for Garbaryan, the court has rejected granting him such.

Notably, the authorities are currently detaining Binance executive Gambaryan to the Kuje correction facility in Lagos.
