Mr Gal Pissetzky the Chicago based lawyer hired by HushPuppi over his alleged fraud case has petitioned the US government and FBI. In his petition, he accused the FBI of kidnapping his client in Dubai and illegally taken him to the United States.
In a one-on-one chat with BBC, the legal practitioner revealed that United Arab Emirates has no extradition agreement with the United States and therefore sees the act as an illegal one. He went further to explain that if an extradition should be made, it should be to his client’s hometown Nigeria.
Pissetzky explained; “in my opinion, the FBI and the government here acted illegally when they kidnapped my client from Dubai without any legal process to do so”. He continued “There was no extradition, there was no legal steps taken, there was no court documents filed, it was simply a call to the FBI. He is not a citizen of the United States, the United States had absolutely no authority to take him. If Dubai wanted to expel him, they should have expelled him back to Nigeria. I’ve never heard anything like that. This is the real story”.
