More Trouble for Googoosha

BBC News – Switzerland probes Uzbek leader’s daughter Gulnara Karimova.

Prosecutors in Switzerland have opened a money laundering investigation into Gulnara Karimova, the eldest daughter of the president of Uzbekistan.

The charges involve the Swedish-Finnish telephone company TeliaSonera and its attempt to get contracts to expand into Uzbekistan.

Swedish-Finnish company TeliaSonera, which is partly state-owned, was accused in a 2012 Swedish TV report of paying an intermediary company, Takilant, $300m for 3G mobile phone rights in Uzbekistan.

Will she be found guilty of wrong-doing?  Will the people of Uzbekistan care?  Will this hurt her chances of taking over the country when her father can no longer rule?
