Co-defendant Tamara Dadyan, a real estate broker, was sentenced to almost 11 years in federal prison. She apparently disappeared and was due to turn herself in last month.
All three defendants were convicted in their role in obtaining a PPP loan fraud scheme. They submitted nearly 150 fraudulent loan applications under which they obtained more than $18 million in Paycheck Protection and Economic Injury Disaster Loan program funds.
While the three were captured, Montenegro does not have an extradition treaty with the United States. The Department of Justice is working with the Montenegro government to turn the three into U.S. custody.
