A Swedish television documentary is offering fresh evidence of a criminal link between Swedish-based telecom giant TeliaSonera and Gulnara Karimova, the daughter of Uzbekistan's autocratic leader, Islam Karimov. The program reveals documents apparently showing TeliaSonera being asked to pay hefty bribes in exchange for protection from government agencies and an infusion of new clients. In this excerpt from the documentary series, "Mission: Investigation," former TeliaSonera executive John Davy describes the cost of doing business in Uzbekistan. (Editor's note: Davy was fired by TeliaSonera after serving less than a year.
