Craig Wright Accused Again Of Forging Documents In Kleiman Case

Craig Wright accused again this time by the Bitmessage developer Jonathan Warren of forging documents regarding the Kleiman vs. Wright case as we learned about it in the previous altcoin news.

The self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator Craig Wright accused for the millionth time after Jonathan Warren provided his testimony which shows that the accused forged the documents. The redacted court documents from the hearing in July have now just emerged after the testimony. Back in 2018, Dave Kleiman’s estate sued Wright for stealing up to 1 million Bitcoin and in response, Wright alleged that Kleiman signed away the sum as a part of the blind trust they agreed on. Wright’s defence was a series of correspondences which were sent on the Bitmessage platform which describe the trust process as well as the escrow wallet for the trust. However, Warren explained to the court that these correspondences were likely forged because the messaging platform was not online during that time according to the proof submitted by Wright.

As we can read in the excerpt from the transcription below in Warren’s cross-examination:

Q: It shows an address beginning with BM-2C?

A: Yes.

Q: And it also shows a received date of October 22, 2012?

A: Yes.

Q: What does that tell you about the message?

A: It tells me that something has been faked. Either the date has been faked or the screenshot has been faked.

Q: Why do you say that?

A: Because Bitmessage wasn’t released that time back in October of 2012.

According to Warren, the communication protocol for Bitmessage went live on November 19, 2012 just a month after Craig Wright  claimed to have communicated via the platform. This is not the first time someone accuses Wright of forgery. Back in July, the prosecution counsel accused Wright of forging the trust deed based on an inspection of the metadata from some of the documents that were submitted by the self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator in October 2012. According to the details at the time, the document contains copyright elements that could not exist earlier than 2015 which is exactly two years after Kleiman’s death. The crypto users are still in dispute as we know from the previous reports in the latest cryptocurrency news over Wright’s claim of being Satoshi Nakamoto so this doesn’t help him as well.
