Silk Road was a dark-web marketplace where drug dealers and others could buy and sell drugs anonymously.
The site was shut down last year, but its operators are still around.
The news comes as Malaysia’s anti-drugs agency investigates claims that Silk Road’s founder, Ross Ulbricht, is behind a $300 million US lawsuit against the US.
The Silk Road website itself has been taken down, but the website’s creator, Ross, has been arrested in the United States.
What’s the story?
Silk Road became popular in 2009 when it became popular among drug dealers.
It was a haven for people looking to get into the illegal drug trade but with the risk of being caught.
Silk Road also was popular for people using it to buy and trade illegal goods.
The sites founder, who is currently in custody, was arrested in 2014, but he is believed to still be operating the site.
The story behind the story Silk Road, like many online black markets, was created by an anonymous person or persons who wanted to buy, sell, or trade illegal drugs.
In 2013, the site was closed down after it was found to be a “p2p” marketplace.
The anonymous site had been used by drug dealers to buy drugs anonymously and was believed to be run by Ulbrich, who was arrested by the US in 2015.
In 2016, the Silk Road operator pleaded guilty to one count of computer hacking, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
Ulbrith admitted he had been the founder of the site and was charged with operating a criminal enterprise.
It is believed he has since fled the country.
What happens next?
The Silk Route website was shuttered in 2016 after the US government seized its computers.
The US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York said the investigation into the alleged Silk Road operation is ongoing.
What are the legal ramifications of the Silk Route story?
The site’s operators, who were also charged with computer hacking and other crimes, were charged with money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
The indictment stated that Ulbrath had “committed crimes that would have been considered crimes for the Silk Path” had the site been closed down.
Ulbbricht has denied involvement in the Silk road and said he was not involved with its creation.
The case will be heard by a judge in December 2018, but it is not known when it will be decided.
