Hushpuppi Was Not Arrested, He Was Kidnaped By The FBI : Lawyer Says

Published

on

Top Chicago lawyer, Gal Pissetzky, who has been engaged by Hushpuppi as his defense counsel has submitted that American authorities kidnapped his client.

The lawyer also maintained that his client is not guilty of the multi-million dollar fraud charges leveled against him as he is a legitimate businessman.

A spokesman for the US Department of Justice quoted by the BBC also said Hushpuppi was expelled from Dubai and was not extradited. He, however, did not answer how he ended up in US custody as the United Arab Emirates has no extradition treaty with the United States and he is not a US citizen.

Hushpuppi’s lawyer, Gal Pissetzky argued that his client was not a criminal and had made his money legitimately by getting money from various brands in exchange for giving them publicity and presence on social media.

He is a social media influencer with millions of followers, with millions of people that respect and loved him, and he loved them, and that’s what he did. In today’s society, that’s a business,” Pissetzky said.

He then added that “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,”

“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,”

The lawyer who vowed to prove his client’s innocence added that “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.”

LGBTQ: UEFA Rejects Request To Light Up Allianz Arena Stadium In Rainbow Colors For Euro 2020 Game

Published

on

European football governing body, UEFA has declined a request to light up Munich’s Allianz Arena in rainbow colors for Wednesday’s Euro 2020 match between Germany and Hungary.

Following a proposal from the Munich city council in the wake of an anti-LGBTQ law passed by Hungary’s parliament last week, the request to light up the stadium was made.

The new legislation bans the dissemination of content in schools deemed to promote homosexuality and gender change.

In a cross-party proposal submitted by Munich city council, the idea to illuminate the Allianz Arena in rainbow lights was to “give an important and visible sign of solidarity towards the LGBTI Community in Hungary, those who suffer under the current tightened homophobic and transphobic Hungarian government legislation.”

But UEFA have now rejected the request saying it will not get involved in politics.

“Racism, homophobia, sexism, and all forms of discrimination are a stain on our societies — and represent one of the biggest problems faced by the game today,” UEFA said in a statement on Tuesday, June 22.

“Discriminatory behavior has marred both matches themselves and, outside the stadiums, the online discourse around the sport we love.

“However UEFA, through its statutes, is a politically and religiously neutral organization. Given the political context of this specific request, a message aiming at a decision taken by the Hungarian national parliament — UEFA must decline this request.”

UEFA added that it has proposed for Munich to light up the stadium either on June 28, which marks Christopher Street Liberation Day, or between July 3 and July 9, which is Christopher Street Day week in Munich.

Christopher Street Liberation Day recognizes the 1969 Stonewall riots and the march in New York City that took place a year later – now considered the first gay pride parade.
