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.
