Gal Pissetzky has revealed that his client Ramon Abbas aka Hushpuppi has not been released from prison as widely reported.
The reports were former based on an information on the Website of the prison where the Instagram celebrity was held in the US.
Speaking to PUNCH, Pissetzky revealed that Hushpuppi was only transfered to another prison.
“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,” he said.
Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai and extradited to the US on allegation of fraud in the tune of N168 billion.
