Swedish Probe Shows Ties Between TeliaSonera, Karimova

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. This is a short excerpt from the documentary series, "Mission: Investigation," to be aired on the evening of May 22.
