BIT OF A RIDDLE Mystery as Bitcoin trader brothers who vanished 'with £2.5bn stolen crypto'

• The Sun

TWO brothers accused of carrying out the biggest Bitcoin heist in history bought citizenship to a remote Pacific island months before disappearing.

Traders Raees Cajee, 21 and Ameer, 18, fled South Africa in April after telling investors their company, Africrypt, had been hacked and all its funds stolen.

Documents seen by the Guardian show that Raees bought his Vanuatu citizenship for £95,000 in October, with Ameer following suit in January 2021.
