On April 7, Cointelegraph reported on a controversy surrounding Bitfinex, after Polish prosecutors reportedly seized €400 mln from two accounts at a little-known Polish bank, one of which was allegedly linked to Bitfinex.

Suspicion had been raised in Polish media that the confiscated funds were involved in an international fraud and money-laundering scheme, in which criminals had been converting laundered fiat into crypto via the exchange and its affiliated accounts.

Reports that these funds ultimately led to narcotics trafficking networks, and that a Bitfinex user had been interrogated by Polish police in the week prior to the seizure, further muddied the waters.

An admin on Bitfinex’s subreddit thread first spoke out against the claims April 8:

“This is not true and Bitfinex aren't affected by whatever has happened. We'll be releasing an official statement on this later today.”
