It’s obvious Hushpuppi will definitely have his scamming ass incarcerated after his US lawyers, Gal Pissetzky and Vicki Podberesky stated their intention to abandon the case.
They have both filed an application at the United States District Court in California, stating their intent. The application was submitted on January 21 and the court will hear it on February 22.
Well, on the flip side, the renowned lawyers are aggrieved that the Nigerian Instagram celebrity is not happy with their defense tactics and have subsequently gone in for new set of lawyers.
“Both family and jail staff have told me that they have conveyed my messages to Mr. Abbas to call me. He informed me that he is retaining new counsel.
“I informed him that I and Ms. Podberesky were moving to withdraw given his refusal to communicate and cooperate with us,” Pissetzky said.
Hushpuppi is being tried on a four-count charge of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, engaging in monetary transactions in property derived from specified unlawful activity, money laundering conspiracies, and international money laundering.
He’s scheduled to reappear in court on May 4, 2021.
