On January 31, families affected by the actions of the Hamas terrorist group filed a collective complaint against Binance in the New York District Court. The plaintiffs claim that the site provided "substantial assistance" to the terrorists and now must compensate for the damage. Bloomberg writes about this.
The complaint says that Binance aided and abetted foreign terrorist organizations and provided them with material support, allowing them to conduct operations on its platform.
The applicants also recalled the November agreement of the crypto exchange with American regulators. The platform pleaded guilty to violating sanctions and anti-money laundering laws and agreed to pay a fine of $4.3 billion. Non-compliance has allowed groups such as Hamas to circumvent U.S. banking regulations.
Lawyers for the families who filed the lawsuit against Binance are confident that the victims are entitled to "substantial damages" in accordance with US law.
At the time of publication of the material, representatives of the trading platform did not comment on the situation in any way.
