Hushpuppi’s lawyer Gal Pissetzky, has accused the FBI of kidnapping his client in Dubai and taken him to the US.
What Gal Pissetzky told BBC about FBI and Hushpuppi
“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.
If Dubai wanted to expel him, they should have expelled him back to Nigeria. I’ve never heard of anything like that. That is the real story here.”
