Uzbek prosecutors charge ex-leader's daughter of 6 criminal offenses
Uzbekistan's authorities have charged the late president's elder daughter Gulnara Karimova of links to criminal enterprises, ordering her to be remanded in custody, the Uzbek prosecutor's office said Friday, according to Sputnik International.
"Karimova Gulnara is charged under articles 168 [fraud], 178 [concealment of foreign currency], 182 [violation of customs legislation], 189 [violation of trade regulations or of providing services], 228 [production, forgery of documents] and 243 [legalization of revenue from criminal activities] of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Uzbekistan," the office said.
The anti-organized crime and corruption department of the prosecutor's office said it has remanded Karimova, Islam Karimov's daughter, in custody.
Uzbekistan has uncovered the assets of a criminal group allegedly assisted by Gulnara Karimova in 12 countries including Russia, the Uzbek prosecutor's office said Friday.
Karimova has been remanded in custody on charges under six articles of the Central Asian country's criminal code, including fraud and money laundering.
"According to the investigation materials, the assets of an organized criminal group totaling $1.394 billion, 63.5 million euros, 27.1 million pounds and 18.5 million francs were preliminarily found in the territory of 12 foreign countries," the office said.
In Russia, the anti-organized crime and corruption department of the prosecutor's office detected $6 million worth of assets, a penthouse, a villa and eight apartments in Moscow, in addition to other land and property, the office said.
Uzbekistan has sent a number of countries an order to seize the assets of the suspected criminal group.
