Court Explains Why Hushpuppi Was Denied Bail




An American court has detailed why Instagram celebrity, Hushpuppi, who is currently facing trial in America was not granted bail at the last sitting.

The court sitting in Illinois, Chicago also denied Ramon Abbas popular as Hushpuppi the opportunity to stay with his girlfriend’s uncle pending the conclusion of his trial.

The court revealed that recommendations from the Pretrial services which provide the court quality information about defendants,  had shown that Hushpuppi presents a risk of non-appearance and should be removed to the charging district in California in custody.

Other reasons for Hushpuppi’s bail denial include the fact that he is subject to a 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.

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.”

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.

Hushpuppi risks spending 20 years in prison if convicted.
