The real reason Ramon Abbas a.k.a Hushpuppi, was denied bail has been revealed by a United States Court sitting in Illinois, Chicago.
Ramon Abbas 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.
The US court has now revealed why it denied Hushpuppi bail and the opportunity to stay with his girlfriend’s Uncle pending the conclusion of his trial.
According to the court, Hushpuppi presents a risk of non appearance, based on recommendations of the Pretrial services which provides the court quality information about defendants.
Premium Times reported that other factors include the fact that Hushpuppi is subject to lengthy period of incarceration if convicted, lacks significant community or family ties to the district, lacks significant family or other ties outside the United States, lacks legal status in the country and will be subjected to removal or deportation for serving any period of incarceration.
If the allegations turns out true, it was further stated that Hushpuppi who has ties with many foreign countries has sufficient assets to fund flight to anywhere in the world.
The statement partly read;
“Abbas reportedly rents an apartment in Dubai for $10.000 a month and drives a Bentley. He is alleged to have committed financial crimes that netted tens of millions of dollars or more.
“For these reasons and those stated on the record, Mr Abbas shall be removed to the charging district in the custody of the US Marshal.”
