According to the Superseding Indictment, the Grandy Jury has found “probable cause” to believe the items detailed above are “derived from proceeds traceable” to Krstic’s Ponzi empire.
Krstic was facing extradition from Serbia to the US. Pending a decision on his extradition, back in July Serbian authorities released Krstic to house arrest.
Krstic and his wife promptly fled and haven’t been seen since.
The DOJ has not addressed Krstic’s disappearance in court filings.
“Oceanaut watch” they are about 50 bucks?
Interesting he had such a vast watch collection though…
Yeah unfortunately they don’t say what belongs to who. I’m assuming most of it is Krstic’s and his wife’s though.
I remember that gaudy outfit Krstic wore when he was released. They definitely strike me as the materialistic type.
During the course of investigation after their arrest, bank account held by Krstic’s wife Xenia (fake name Majda Pretejc) was detected and seized, probably in a Slovenian bank. Balance was 250 million.
The news was promptly removed from the media space and is almost impossible to google now days.
Too much manipulation, mystery and silence around this case.
There is references to “temporarily seized” boxes of forfeiture items in the superseding indictment.
This is very intresting they had $250 million in a bank SLO. Slovenian banks are compliant.
I am corious how this will follow, please keep us updated Oz.
Balance was 250 million. -> USD$?
How the fuck can you have 250m$ in a bank, and no one ask any questions lol.
@Anon, Slovenian banks may be compliant and the country is not on FATF grey list, but few years ago FBI was going though Slovenian NLB Bank records due to massive laundering activities (SAR reports) connected to crime money. It’s a fact, but rarely spoken of.
The 250 usd or eur balance uncovered was reported by media initially but quickly removed, quote:
As our portal finds out, during the search of the houses of the main suspects, six cars worth over one million euros were found, more than 30 expensive Rolex watches, as well as more than 250 million euros in the account of the accused Philippine citizen.
Well at least they got the wristwatches 😉
This crime organisation has some investments in Philippines property in Manila, per some indications. Megacity project, apparently.
The people indicted are NOT the roof of the organisation. Some of the key people are not indicted, per available information. But as one of the accused scammers stated, FBI has all the information necessary.
Let’s see what happens by March 2022.
Thanks for the explanation, looking forward to see what happens in March 2022.
