The Justice Department in a detailed statement released Friday, said Hushpuppi took part in a “North Korean-perpetrated cyber-enabled heist from a Maltese bank in February 2019.”
His role was as a collaborator with a North Korean money launderer, Ghaleb Alaumary, based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
The 37 year-old Alaumary was one of the people charged today, by the FBI for many criminal schemes, alongside three North Koreans.
Leo reacting to the news tweeted; “It’s hilarious how you will be laundering money for North Koreans and still be living lavish for the gram. I now see why they did all they can to get him from Dubai. If those charges stick, I will be with grandkids before he gets out”.
