Hushpuppi’s lawyer has revealed what really happened and cleared the air on if the suspected Nigerian fraudster has been released from prison.
Information shared on the U.S Federal Bureau of Prisons website, had indicated that Hushpuppi has been released.
A quick search for Hushpuppi’s name and serial number on the Bureau of Prisons website showed that he was ‘released’ on Monday.
According to Pissetzky, Hushpuppi was transferred to another prison instead. The lawyer also confirmed he was still representing Hushpuppi.
This has led to multiple reactions online that the Instagram celebrity had been released from prison.
Gal Pissetzky, who is Ramon Abass, aka Hushpuppi’s lawyer has now revealed that he has not been released, but transferred to another prison. He said;
“He is on his way to California, United States of America, for trial. …”
Pissetzky told PUNCH on Wednesday night. “He has not been released and I am still his lawyer. He is on his way to California.
“Not everything you see on court documents is accurate.”
“Just because the jail record says ‘released’ does not mean he has been released. He is being transferred to California,”
As we all know, Hushpuppi’s bail application failed in spite of his lawyer, Gal Pissetzky insisting that his job as an Instagram celebrity paid for the $10,000 monthly rent on his luxury Dubai flat.
His lawyer, Gal Pissetzky, had applied for bail and requested that he is given an ankle monitor while he lives with the uncle of a woman he has a baby with, but US prosecutors opposed the bail application.
US prosecutors said that he poses flight risk and could commit crime with just a smartphone and an internet connection.
