Tornado Cash Developer Alexey Pertsev Freed Pending Trial
The developer was held without a bail up until this point for maintaining free and open source software.
- Pertsev was arrested last August by Dutch authorities over allegations of facilitating money laundering by maintaining a free and open source software project.
- The developer has denied the charges against him.
- "Before today, the software developer had faced repeated denials of release as Dutch judges expressed concern about the risk of him fleeing or tampering with evidence if allowed out."
"I’m happy to confirm Alex will be at home on April 26 on his birthday," Pertsev's wife Ksenia Malik told The Block. "He will be with an ankle monitor. But at home."
- "A further investigation hearing in the case will be held on May 24."
