Documents Link Uzbekistan's Karimova To Money-Laundering Suspect

New documents uncovered by Swedish journalists in France link Gulnara Karimova, the millionaire daughter of autocratic Uzbek President Islam Karimov, with an Uzbek citizen under investigation for money laundering and other financial crimes in Switzerland and Sweden.
Russian investigators say the $10-million Moscow apartment belonging to the daughter of Uzbekistan's president has been seized as part of an investigation.

Reports on November 2 said Gulnara Karimova's flat in the Camelot complex on Komsomolsky Prospect was seized in accordance with a court order issued on October 31.

Russian investigators are looking into the Uzbek authorities' decision to strip mobile operator Uzdunrobita, a subsidiary of Russia's MTS, of its license earlier this year along with the seizure of company property and assets.

Uzbek authorities claim the MTS subsidiary owes some $1 billion, approximately the amount invested by MTS in Uzbekistan.

Uzdunrobita was Uzbekistan's largest mobile operator with some 9.5 million customers.

Russia's Interior Ministry has filed a criminal case against the seizures of MTS property and assets in Uzbekistan.
