Let’s be clear – Pras is not currently facing any public charges however prosecutors allege in court documents the following:
Musician Prakazrel “Pras” Michel a founding member of the Fugees took part in a conspiracy to funnel tens of millions of dollars into the United States to help a Malaysian fugitive try to influence a series of Justice Department investigations and anti-crime efforts.
So it may not be long until there is a public announcement or charges filed against Pras. This whole debacle stems from an attempt to mislead banking authorities by moving funds into the US under false pretenses. Major banks were told;
that certain funds were being transferred from a legitimate company overseas for the purpose of an entertainment venture.
This was false. The funds were actually to be used by a corrupt Malaysian financier named Jho Low and the funds at hand were being laundered from the Malaysian government. It’s a huge scandal and it seems Pras may have inadvertently helped to facilitate certain aspects of the crime.
We hope Pras can deal with the situation at hand and comes out the other side unscathed. Let’s wait and see how this plays out through the judicial system.
