CoinDesk: ‘Craig Wright Accuses Critics of Bugging His House, Spoofing Emails to Bring Him Back to Court’

“Craig Wright accused critics of bugging his home and spoofing an email he’s been accused of doctoring during a Friday cross-examination in the U.K. trial probing his claims of having invented Bitcoin.

Spoofing involves changing the metadata of an email to – among other things – make it look like it was sent from a different address.

When asked by presiding Judge James Mellor if he could specify who did the spoofing, Wright said, “Unfortunately not. I suspect a number of people, My Lord.”

On Friday, Wright vehemently denied accusations made by COPA of backdating the email in question to support a statement he’d made in court the previous week concerning his former legal representatives at Ontier.

Wright instead blamed the timestamp and other discrepancies on email spoofing, spam folders, domain migrations, surveillance and hacking.

Judge Mellor asked why someone seeking Wright’s downfall would doctor an email to support something he’d said, to which Wright replied, “Oh, no. It doesn’t support.”

He said that the email was doctored by a malicious actor to fabricate an excuse to bring him back to court.”
