Gibbs’ lawyer, Scott Leemon, states, “Freddie Gibbs adamantly denies the allegations that have been levied against by Austrian authorities. It makes you wonder why it took almost a year for Austrian officials to bring these charges.”

Freddie will make his next appearance in the French court on June 23, where a ruling on his extradition will be issued.
