Fugees the band’s member Pras Michel is set to stand trial for money laundering, and has an expected start date of November 4. As per Rolling Stone it is believed that the Justice Department has alleged that Michel has aided Malaysian Businessman Jho Low and the wealth fund 1MDB to steal the funds that should have been used intended for Malaysian growth. Michel was allegedly paid anything from $8 to $40 million to help Low. In the year 2019, he pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and falsifying documents charges.

Alongside Michel the case includes numerous high-profile witnesses associated with Low. Leonardo DiCaprio used funds from 1MDB to make the film The Wolf Of Wall Street. The year after Michel admitted to not being guilty of previous charges, DiCaprio made a secret statement before an indictment at the time in DC.

The publication also lists witnesses who are Trump supporters on their witness lists too. Some of them are “White White House chief of staff John Kelly, former national security advisor H.R. McMaster and former assistant national security adviser Matt Pottinger, RNC deputy finance chair Elliott Broidy and lobbyist.” Broidy was previously found guilty of guilty “to being an unregistered foreign agent to promote Chinese as well as Malaysian concerns in the 2020 election” prior to when Trump pardoned him one year afterward.

In light of Broidy’s pardon for 2021 Michel has reportedly tried to persuade Trump’s administration to end this Low as well as the 1MDB investigation, which has resulted in more charges prior to the trial.

Michel was scheduled to perform on a tour reunion with the Fugees in the fall of last year however it hasn’t happened due to ongoing COVID-related concerns. In the spring of this year, it was said to have been cancelled due to Michel’s ongoing medical issue.
