Gal Pissetzky, the legal representative of suspected Internet fraudster, Raymond Abass a.k.a Hushpuppi, has denied reports insinuating the release of his client from prison in United States of America.

He was reacting to the information on the U.S Federal Bureau Of Prisons website, which shows that Hushpuppi has regained his freedom.

According to the details on the website, Hushpuppi’s identification number (54313424) when he was taken into custody, indicates that he was released on July 20, 2020.

However, while speaking with Punch on Wednesday night, Pissetzky confirmed that Hushpuppi had not been released as being speculated in some quarters.

The Chicago lawyer said the suspect is on his way to California for trial, adding that he was still representing the suspected fraudster.

“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,” Pissetzky said on the phone.

This is coming just one week after Hushpuppi was taken to a Chicago court, where he was denied bail, before the case was transferred to California.

KanyiDaily had reported how Hushpuppi and his 10 gang members were arrested in the United Arab Emirate, Dubai on June 10, 2020, for defrauding over 1.9 million victims to the tune of $435.6 million (N168 billion).

Amongst other charges, Hushpuppi and his accomplices were also accused of conspiring to steal £100 million (approximately $124 million) from an English Premier League soccer club.

On Friday, July 4, 2020, Hushpuppi was charged with the conspiracy to commit money laundering before a United States court, one for which he could get a maximum jail term of 20 years if convicted.
