The fallen crypto boss lives in the cell only on bread and water

Earlier this month, former CEO of collapsed crypto exchange FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, had his bail withdrawn. He did not keep to the agreements and tried to influence potential witnesses. After repeated warnings, the measure was full. Bankman-Fried is now behind bars awaiting his trial, which begins in October.

According to his lawyers, Bankman-Fried is being treated very badly in prison. He is only served water with bread and peanut butter. He also does not take his prescribed medication. These news Inner City Press via Twitter.

No vegetarian diet for ex-FTX CEO

The attorneys complain to the judge about Bankman-Fried’s condition. The lawyers said it was unacceptable for him to be treated this way. The reason he only eats bread, water, and sometimes some peanut butter is because the prison can’t provide him with a meat-free diet. Bankman Fried is vegan.

The former crypto magnate also has a serious shortage of medication. He gets a prescription called Adderall, a drug commonly used in people with ADHD. According to his lawyers, he has not taken any medication for eleven days.

The judge has indicated that he will review the situation. The lawyers want change. For example, Bankman-Fried would not be able to prepare for his upcoming trial under the current circumstances.

“Our client cannot prepare for his trial. He has been detained since August 11. We couldn’t prepare eleven days and six weeks before the trial. We haven’t been offered a good solution yet.”
