Swiss federal prosecutors have indicted the daughter of a former president of Uzbekistan on charges including money laundering, bribery and participation in a criminal network that used “violence and intimidation”. Authorities have already frozen or confiscated hundreds of millions of Swiss francs (dollars) in the case.


The attorney general’s office said Gulnara Karimova, the daughter of former President Islam Karimov, was indicted along with the former director-general of the Uzbek subsidiary of a Russian telecommunications company for crimes allegedly committed between 2005 and 2013.


That was during Karimov’s tenure: He led the central Asian country for more than a quarter-century until his death in September 2016.


His daughter once served at the UN office in Geneva, and benefited from diplomatic immunity.

Culminating a criminal probe that was opened more than a decade ago, the prosecutors announced the indictment on Thursday and said Karimova allegedly developed and ran a crime ring known as “The Office” that involved several dozen people.
