Egyptian Restauranteur Kellel Gets 2 Years For Tax Evasion at Raffles Bistro Starting March 1

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 30 – Adel Kellel was born in Cairo and has run restaurants in New York since the 1980s. He pleaded guilty to tax evasion. 

 On November 30, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul G. Gardephe held his sentencing. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Kellel spoke at length, about his 90 year old mother, about having to pay the hotel for Raffles Bistro, and the unions, opening a new restaurant in Long Beach and buying a small house there.

   Judge Gardephe said tax evasion is hard to identify and must be punished. He imposed two years, to start on March 1.

 The case is US v. Kellel, 20-cr-67 (Gardephe)
