Following his arrest in Dubai to the US soil. Hushpuppi’s lawyer, Gal Pissestzky told the BBC his client was kidnapped
“In my opinion, the FBI and the government here acted illegally when they kidnapped him from Dubai without any legal process to do so”.
He also added that “There was no extradition, there were mo legal steps taken, there were not court documents filled. It was simply a call to the FBI. He is not a citizen of the United States. The US had no authority to take him”.
Gal told BBC again that his client is no criminal and he makes his money through legit means.
According to the lawyer, while the case could land Hushpuppi 20 years in Jail. It could as well last several months or more.
