As part of a probe, Interpol reportedly issued a red notice for Thodex CEO and founder Faruk Fatih Özer, who had reportedly flown to Albania.
Some suspects indicated that Özer’s siblings — Güven Özer and Serap Özer — could have been serving major roles in Thodex's operations, noting that both had significant crypto holdings, local news agency Anadolu Agency reports.
Güven Özer reportedly holds nearly 22 million Turskish liras ($2. 7 million) on two major local crypto exchanges including BtcTurk and Paribu.
Güven reportedly served as an active executive at Thodex despite not having an official role at the company.
Serap Özer, the missing CEO’s sister, reportedly had over 120 million liras ($14. 6 million) worth of crypto transactions on her Binance account between 2018 and 2021.
As previously reported, the missing Thodex CEO is reported to have run off with as much as $2 billion worth of crypto, but according to the latest reports, Interior Minister Soylu said that the company’s portfolio totaled $108 million.
