Justin Sun’s Grenada ambassadorship to WTO ends
Grenada's local media reported that Justin Sun had been recalled after the political party that appointed him lost elections in June 2022.
Tron founder Justin Sun said his ambassadorship term with Grenada ends today.
In a March 31 Twitter thread, Sun explained that his role as Grenada’s ambassador to the World Trade Organization (WTO) was ending following the end of his term.
Earlier this week, local media reports in Grenada said Sun — alongside other ambassadors — were recalled after the political party that appointed them lost elections in June 2022. According to the report, all ambassadors were recalled during the early months of the new administration.
Sun said the highlight of his tenure was serving as the head of Grenada’s delegation to the 12th Ministerial Conference. He noted that this allowed him to address the conference and discuss trade issues with representatives from around the world.
Meanwhile, Sun said he would focus on smoothly transitioning his duties to his successor over the coming months. He added:
“I plan to take some time to rest before continuing my career as a public servant, with a particular focus on digital economy and crypto regulation, as I believe that these areas are crucial to the future of trade and development.”
Sun was appointed as WTO ambassador by Grenada in December 2021. Since then, he has styled himself with the honorific “His Excellency (H.E.)” on his social media accounts. The accounts still have this honorific as of press time.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently filed a lawsuit against Sun and his companies. The SEC alleged that the sale of TRON (TRX) and BitTorrent (BTT) constituted unregistered securities offerings.
