The first response to the claims of the American regulator.
The head of Tesla Elon Musk rejected accusations of fraud, which was presented to him by the US Securities and Exchange Commission. The statement of the entrepreneur was published by CNBC and TechCrunch .
These unreasonable actions of the commission deeply grieved and disappointed me. I always made decisions in the interests of truth, openness and for investors. Honesty has always been one of my main features. And the facts will show that I have never compromised with this [principle] in any way.
The American regulator accused Musk of forgery and the introduction of shareholders in a twisted tweet about the possible transformation of Tesla into a private company. He led to an increase in Tesla shares by 6% and destabilized the market, the Securities Commission is sure.
