A piece of developing details around Nigerian Ray Huspuppi is that he has reportedly pleaded guilty to all charges and may face up to 20 year in prison.
Evan Ratliff who writes for Bloomberg noted in a tweet:
“In his plea agreement, Abbas admitted to laundering money from the Malta Bank heist and the BEC attacks on a Premier League club, another UK firm, and an American law firm, as well as additional schemes.
“Abbas’ plea agreement, which involved crimes allegedly perpetrated by North Korean state-sponsored hackers, was heavily redacted and many of the filings in the case remain sealed.”
Hushpuppi was arrested by Dubai police on June 10, 2020, alongside 11 other members of his gang which include Olalekan Jacob Ponle aka ‘Woodberry.’
Kemi Olunloyo also made this known via her social media account on Wednesday. She disclosed that Hushpuppi may go 20 years in jail.
