As per the evidence presented by the government, it has been revealed that Desnica, hailing from Smederevska Palanka, Serbia, conspired in 2019 to create and manage a website that would facilitate the sale of illegal drugs.

This website, which came to be known as Monopoly Market, gradually evolved into a massive online marketplace for peddling illicit narcotics products.

According to the FBI’s investigation, Monopoly was involved in facilitating the illegal sale of drugs worth more than $18 million to customers all around the world.

Shockingly, the banned drugs weighing over 30 kilos were also sold to consumers in the US.

After conducting a thorough investigation, it was discovered that a woman named Desnica was operating a monopoly.

Further information revealed that Desnica was extradited from Austria to the United States on June 23, 2023, to face charges relating to her involvement in narcotics trafficking.

The Justice Department’s Office of International Affairs went to great lengths to provide significant assistance and support in the efforts to ensure Desnica’s arrest and extradition from Austria.

Their unwavering commitment to justice and cooperation with international authorities played a crucial role in the successful resolution of this case.
