Hushpuppi Transferred To California For Trial by Made4naijaceo(f): 1:12pm On Jul 18, 2020
Hushpuppi dumps top Chicago lawyer as court transfers trial to California

A popular Nigerian Instagram celebrity facing wire fraud charges in the United States, Ramoni Abbas (popularly called Hushpuppi), has settled for a government lawyer after his case was transferred to another district.

Mr Abbas, 37, who was resident in Dubai and known for flaunting extravagant lifestyle on social media, was arrested last month over money laundering allegations. He was extradited to the U.S on July 3.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation had earlier alleged that Mr Abbas was part of a network that made “hundreds of millions of dollars” from business email compromise frauds and other scams.

Also, the American government said Mr Abbas funded his extravagant lifestyle with stolen money.

PREMIUM TIMES earlier reported how Mr Abbas hired a top lawyer in the U.S., Gal Pissetzky of the Pissetzky & Berliner law firm as his attorney.

Mr Pissetzky, renowned for handling criminal cases in Chicago, had argued that his client sourced his money from promoting designer products on social media and a real estate investment.

It should be noted a Chicago court, on Monday, denied him bail and ruled that he remains in detention till his next trial date later in the year.

However, documents obtained by PREMIUM TIMES showed that Mr Abbas’s case has been transferred to the Central District of California for prosecution.

American prosecutors had earlier said Mr Abbas would still be transferred to Los Angeles, a city in California.

During the detention hearing on Monday, the government orally renewed its motion for removal in custody and the government’s oral motion was granted.

“Accordingly, Defendant is ordered removed to the Central District of California in the custody of the U.S. Marshal forthwith. As provided by 18 U.S.C. § 3142(f), Defendant is remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal and shall remain in custody until further order of the Court,” Justice Gilbert ruled.

Transfer documents signed by Thomas G. Bruton, the Clerk of the U.S Court in Chicago, indicated that Mr Abbas was moved on Tuesday.

Moreover, in the commitment letter sent to California, Mr Abbas refused to retain Mr Pissetzky as his attorney. Rather, he requested that a court-appointed counsel be assigned to him.

If convicted, Mr Abbas would get a minimum sentence of 20 years in the U.S. federal prison.

He charged you too much?

Better hire 'charge and bail' lawyer to handle your case.

Cos you will still end up in jail no matter how expensive the lawyer you hire is.



Seems like the Hushpuppians clapping for him are no longer making noise. Foolish supporters!!

What Matters Most is that We learn the lessons..

The Consequences of Evil is always Greater than the enjoyment!

Peace is Priceless..

20k that you made in Honesty is better than 20billion Made in Robbery, Kidnap, Fraud and Evil..

It's not only by doing Fraud that you can Make Billions.. you can Make it Huge in your Corner! Do your Honest Business and Walk with God! At your Time, you will Blow!


Most Importantly, in all you Do, Ensure you Invite JESUS Christ in your Life and Businesses!
It pays !

Hmm!


Hushpuppi chances of freedom getting slimmer by the day despite huge expectation from his popular lawyer Mr pissetzsky.




What a disappointment to his supporters who believe his lawyer will free him in less than a month.

This is America not Nigeria and as such no much room for maniuvering.

No matter how hard you run, you can never escape the prize for wickedness, if you barely escape your generation wouldn't miss it.

Learn to do good
What is bad is bad

The western world is also reaping the prize for their own wickedness towards us.

There is a prize for everything and a reward for every action be it good or bad.
