On April 7, Ignatov was pleaded guilty and in return received relief from the court of having an extension of few more months from April 8 to July 8, 2020, because according to the U.S. attorney Ignatov is being seen in cooperation with the prosecutors and the activity was still in the process to unseal the important facts.
