Gal Pissetzky, legal counselor to Nigerian presumed worldwide fraudster, Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, prevalently known as Ray Hushpuppi, has said that Hushpuppi was abducted by the FBI from Dubai and taken to the US.
Hushpuppi and another digital heist suspect, Mr Woodberry were captured in Dubai, where they lived, in June. The US and UAE have no current removal settlement however Dubai police said the two speculated fraudsters were removed to the US.
The BBC cited a representative for the US Department of Justice as saying that Hushpuppi was ousted from Dubai and was not removed.Hushpuppi’s lawyer Pissetzky, said, “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.”
