Gal Pissetzky who legally represents Ramon Abass aka Hushpuppi has said that the action of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, to extradite his client from Dubai to the US is an act of kidnap.
Speaking to BBC, Pissetzky said that his client is not a citizen of the and so the FBI lacks the right to extradite him from Dubai to the US.
“In my opinion, the FBI and the government here acted illegally when they kidnapped him from Dubai without any legal process to do so.
“There was no extradition, there were no legal steps taken, there were no court documents filed, it was simply a call to the FBI. He is not a citizen of the United States, the US had absolutely no authority to take him.”
Pissetzky had earlier stated that Hushpuppi is not a fraudster as widely claimed. According to him, he’s into real estates.
Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai for fraud in the tune of N168 billion
