Justin Sun states he is still Grenada’s WTO minister and provides evidence in the form of screenshots
The founder of Tron, Justin Sun, provided The Block with photographs proving he is Grenada’s WTO ambassador.
The reports are “false,” Sun told The Block, sharing a screenshot from Friday that demonstrates he has an active profile on the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) internal registration website as the ambassador for Grenada.
Sun also provided a screenshot of the “internal terminal” of the WTO, which lists him as the ambassador and permanent representative of Grenada to the WTO.
The Grenada Broadcasting Network, which is owned by the government and the Caribbean Communications Network, reported earlier this week that Sun had been removed from his position as ambassador sometime after the June 2022 elections, when the New National Party, which had appointed Sun, was defeated by the National Democratic Congress.
The government of Grenada appointed Sun as ambassador to the WTO in December 2021. Since his appointment, he has addressed himself on his social media accounts as “His Excellency.” He maintains the “H.E.” designation on his verified personal and diplomatic Twitter accounts.
The WTO and the administration of Grenada did not respond quickly to requests for comment from The Block.
Last week, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission sued Sun and Tron for offering and selling unregistered crypto tokens Tronix (TRX) and BitTorrent. (BTT). In addition, the regulator alleged that TRX prices were manipulated between April 2018 and February 2019.
