Suspected Nigerian fraudster Ramon Abbas, popularly known as Hushpuppi has just been denied access to bail in US.
This comes days after his revered lawyer Gal Pissetzky claimed that Hushpuppi is into real Estate and equally a brand influencer. He equally insisted that his job as an Instagram celebrity paid for the $10,000 monthly rent on his luxury Dubai flat.
His lawyers had applied for him to leave jail with an electronic tag and live with the uncle of a woman with whom he has a child with, but US prosecutors opposed the bail application. UAE's The National reported that prosecutors said he could commit crimes with just a smartphone and an internet connection, and that he posed too much of a flight risk, according to LIB.
“I don’t see the reason why he would want to ruin his credibility in the world and his status rather than stay here and face this allegation.
