Hushpupi Involved in Bank Theft Organised By North Koreans

The Justice Department linked Hushpupi to the bank theft through Alaumary, who allegedly linked up with ‘Ray Hushpupi’ to launder funds from a North Korea organised cyber-enabled heist from a bank in Maltese in February 2019.


The Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Department of the National Security Division, John.C Demers said;

“As laid out in today’s indictment, North Korea’s operatives, using keyboards rather than guns, stealing digital wallets of cryptocurrency instead of sacks of cash, are the world’s leading bank robbers. “

Reports from BBC, say that Hushpuppi was linked to the crime when investigators unsealed a charge against Ghaleb Alaumary of Ontario, Canada.
