Mark Karpelès, the former CEO of defunct Bitcoin exchange platform, Mt. Gox says he is innocent of the charges against him. Meanwhile, prosecutors say the 33-year old of French descent should face ten years imprisonment for his alleged crimes.
Quoting local media sources in Japan, the South China Morning Post say Karpelès apologized for the collapse of Mt. Gox. He, however, maintained his innocence of any wrongdoing in the matter.
