Goran was recently accused of trafficking over 20 tons of cocaine worth over a billion dollars. He was arrested at Miami International Airport on October 31, 2022, while attempting to board a flight bound for Zurich. He was charged with three counts of federal drug violations and also conspiracy. The drug in question was found at the Parker Avenue marine terminal in Philadelphia in 2019 and two people linked to the scandal were arrested.
The cocaine was to be shipped to Europe by being loaded onto smaller speedboats at night and hidden in smaller commercial containers. Goran’s name came up in the case because he formulated the entire plan and also oversaw the logistics of the shipments. More cocaine seizures were seen in Peru, Panama, and other countries like the Netherlands, and the full seizure became known as the largest seizure in US history.
