“If That $20 Bill Was A Counterfeit, George Didn’t Know It!” : Floyd’s Roommate Says He Was A Good Man Who Would Never Use Fake Cash, Take Drugs And Barely Drank Alcohol

George Floyd’s roommate has said that the $20 bill that instigated his arrest and his death may not have been a fake. He added that if it was, Floyd would have never intentionally used counterfeit cash.

Floyd’s roommate of four years, Alvin Manago, 55, told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview that Floyd was a stand-up guy and if he did use a counterfeit bill at the store before his death, it was “unintentional”.

He said: “I’ve never known Floyd to use any counterfeit money. If he tried to pass along a counterfeit $20 bill it was unintentional. He probably didn’t know the money was fake.

“I’m just not sure why the store employees didn’t just tell him it was a fake $20. They all knew him then. He was a regular customer.”

Manago met George Floyd, 46, when they worked together at the Conga Bistro Bar and Grill. Floyd worked security and Manago worked as a bar back. Manago says they had been roommates for almost four years and considers him one of his best friends.

His death has sparked protests in different cities across the United States.

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.”
