US Court Reveals Why Hushpuppi Was Denied Bail

Published

on

A United States Court sitting in Illinois, Chicago has shared its reason for denying Ramon Abbas a.k.a Hushpuppi bail.

Recall that the Instagram celebrity who was arrested last month in Dubai for alleged wire fraud and extradited to the U.S on July 3, was accused of being part of a network that made “hundreds of millions of dollars” from business email compromise frauds and other scams.

The US court has now revealed it denied Hushpuppi bail and the opportunity to stay with his girlfriend’s Uncle pending the conclusion of his trial.

Based on the recommendations of the Pretrial services which provide the court quality information about defendants, it was stated that Hushpuppi presents a risk of nonappearance and should be removed to the charging district in California in custody.

Premium Times reported that other factors include the fact that Mr. Abbas is subject to the lengthy period of incarceration if convicted, lacks significant community or family ties to the district, lacks significant family or other ties outside the United States, lacks legal status in the country and will be subjected to removal or deportation for serving any period of incarceration.

If the allegations turn out true, it was further stated that Huspuppi who has ties with many foreign countries has sufficient assets to fund a flight anywhere in the world.

The statement partly read; “Abbas reportedly rents an apartment in Dubai for $10.000 a month and drives a Bentley. He is alleged to have committed financial crimes that netted tens of millions of dollars or more.

“For these reasons and those stated on the record, Mr Abbas shall be removed to the charging district in the custody of the US Marshal.”

Hushpuppi risks spending 20 years in prison if convicted.

We Are Not Removing NDC Supporters Names From Voters Register : EC Refutes John Mahama’s ‘Unfounded Allegations’

Published

on

The Electoral Commission (EC) has debunked claims to the effect that the Electoral Management Body is carrying out an agenda to remove the names of National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) supporters and sympathizers from the voters’ register.

The EC is asking the general public to disregard the allegations, stressing it is false. “The Commission has, from the beginning of the compilation of the Voters Register, lived up to its motto: Fairness, Transparency, and Accountability.

Indeed, at every point, we have provided factual, accurate, and evidence-based information to our Stakeholders on voter statistics per region, district, gender, age among others. To date, every interested Ghanaian has information on the number of persons who registered in the just concluded Voter Registration Exercise based on the information we provided.

“It is a paradox, therefore, to suggest that the same Commission now seeks to remove persons from the Voters Register. Had that been the agenda of the Commission, it would not have given detailed information to Stakeholders throughout the Registration process. We assure the General Public that these allegations are unfounded,” a statement by the Electoral Commission read.
