Legal delays over Foster’s Bitcoin charges


Serial scammer Peter Foster’s legal fight against an alleged multi-million Bitcoin scam will have to wait until 2023 after another legal deadline.

The 60-year-old is facing a series of charges for an alleged $2 million Bitcoin fraud in Hong Kong in 2019 and 2020.

Foster opted out of a legal notice on charges of five counts of fraud, two counts of obtaining or processing identifying information and one count of tampering with records in Southport court on Wednesday.

Defense attorney Lee Quinn requested that additional material be disclosed by the prosecution, forcing the case to be adjourned until January.

Magistrate Catherine Pirie said there had been continued delays from Foster’s legal team.

“How many adjournments do you need to finalize disclosure,” the magistrate asked in court.

“When is this going to end… There have been many adjournments regarding disclosure. If this is a continuing issue, then a magistrate will have to decide.”

The case has been adjourned until February 24 for further mention.
