London detains wife of jailed Azerbaijani banker
NCA demanded an explanation of money origin from a foreign citizen.
British police arrested Zamira Hajiyeva, who spent £16 million at London's Harrods department store, BBC reports.
She is under investigation by Britain's National Crime Agency (NCA), which in February secured the country’s first-ever unexplained wealth order to target Hajiyeva's wealth.
Hajiyeva's husband, Jahangir Hajiyev, was chairman of the state-owned International Bank of Azerbaijan; in 2016, he was sentenced to 15 years in prison after being found guilty of fraud and embezzlement.
According to BBC, Hajiyeva was detained last week. The police also confiscated jewelry worth a total of £400.000. The NCA is interested in her wastes and real estate in London worth about £15 million.
The miraculous landing of an Airbus A321 belonging to Ural Airlines on a cornfield raised a number of questions in relation to waste landfills in the metropolitan area. The airbus struck a flock of seagulls because an illegal dump site was established not far from Zhukovsky International Airport. The CrimeRussia performed its own inquest to uncover ties between the emergency landing of the A321 and Andrei Vorobiev, Governor of the Moscow Region. It turned out that dump sites, seagulls, officials of Ramenskoe, and detained thief-in-law Shishkan are links of the same chain that cannot be broken even by the law enforcement authorities. After the aerial incident, a criminal case was instituted under Article 263 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (violation of the rules for traffic safety and operation of the railway, air, sea and inland water transportation systems). But the question is: why no criminal proceedings were launched in relation to the corruption and establishment of illegal landfills?
