A legal luminary, Gal Pissetzky said he has a good chance of beating the fraud allegations against his client and alleged Internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, well known as Hushpuppi.
Speaking to The PUNCH on Thursday Pissetzky said, he planned to put up “vigorous defence to get him out of the case.”
Pissetzky who has been involved in many notable cases in the United States of America, is a top Chicago-based criminal defence attorney.
The alleged internet fraudster Hushpuppi, was arrested by the Dubai authorities in a sting operation.
A reliable source has also revealed that, Hushpuppi, 37, and his gang have allegedly defrauded 1,926,400 people from different parts of the world and stolen about 1.6bn Dirham (N168bn).
On the steps taken so far after his arrest, the Dubai police have handed him over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the US, where he was arraigned on charges of conspiracy to commit money laundering, among others.
Another Allegation by the FBI was that Hushpuppi attempted to defraud an English Premier League football club of £100m (N48.4bn).
The legal representative of the alleged fraudster has made his comments concerning the fraud case. While speaking to Forbes, Pissetzky said that the suspect was not guilty of the crimes.
Speaking further, he stated that, “Absolutely not guilty of [the] charges they are accusing him of. (Abbas) was running a legitimate business and a very legitimate Instagram account and did not take part in any scam or fraud.”
