Hushpuppi Denied Bail In The US

Despite the good work his lawyer, Gal Pissetzky has done as he insisted his client (Hushpuppi) job is an Instagram celebrity paid $10,000 monthly rent for his luxury Dubai flat.

Gal who applied for his release from jail with an electronic tag and live with the uncle of a woman with whom he has a child with, but the bail application was opposed US prosecutors.

UAE’s The National reported that prosecutors stated he could commit crimes with just a smartphone and an internet connection and that he posed too much of a flight risk.

While reacting to prosecutors’ argument, Pissetzky said his client had too much to lose if he flees from the United States.

He told a judge in Chicago by video link;

“He is loved and respected. He is a celebrity. “I don’t see the reason why he would want to ruin his credibility in the world and his status rather than stay here and face this allegation.

“Anywhere he goes, people will know. Having grown up very poor in Nigeria, Mr. Abbas is now paid to pose with high-priced items such as Louis Vuitton bags that people would buy after seeing his posts on Instagram. “He is an influencer.

That’s a job today, as much as it is hard to imagine. That’s a full-time job.”

Judge Jeffrey Gilbert who watched the proceedings from a prison video link, denied Hushpuppi bail on grounds of him being a flight risk.

Gilbert ordered that the suspected Nigerian fraudster be remanded in custody until he is taken to a court in California.
