The Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office charged Roman Storm and Roman Semenov with money laundering conspiracy, and conspiracy to violate U.S. sanctions targeting North Korea, among other things.
Storm, who was taken into custody earlier this week, and Semenov, who remains at large, are accused of making millions of dollars by allegedly working with the North Korean hacking group the Lazarus Project.
In a statement, Manhattan U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said Storm and Semenov “knowingly facilitated” money laundering in excess of more than $1 billion in criminal proceeds and worked with North Korea in an alleged violation of U.S. sanctions.
“While publicly claiming to offer a technically sophisticated privacy service, Storm and Semenov in fact knew that they were helping hackers and fraudsters conceal the fruits of their crimes,” Williams said.
