The former head of the bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, filed a memorandum in which he asked the US Department of Justice requests to be withdrawn because they are “unreasonable and excessive.”

Sam Bankman-Fried argues that most of the issues raised by the government cannot be properly addressed at this stage.

In addition, the memorandum states that the requests are “aimed at admitting irrelevant and biased evidence relating to conduct that is no longer or has never been charged, at undermining any potential defense, and at admitting broad categories of hearsay and other inappropriate evidence.

The document also argues that the prosecutor’s requests are “unsupported by law and unworkable” in practice and therefore should not be granted.

Meanwhile, Bankman-Fried’s lawyers are pushing for the temporary release of the former FTX chief, saying the conditions provided by the authorities are insufficient to prepare for an October trial.

Earlier it became known that Robinhood Markets is buying back its own shares in the amount of $605 million, which previously belonged to the founder of FTX.
