Uzbek thing: what happens to a country after the death of Islam Karimov
In June of this year, the Uzbek Agency “Fergana” published an article with a link to Instagram user under the name iman.k17, who calls herself the daughter Gulnara Karimova Iman. Verify ownership of the account, Iman Karimova publication failed. The user wrote about the fate of “mom”, that is, presumably, Gulnara Karimova, who disappeared from public view in 2014. According to the user, in August 2015 I passed the “home court” which sentenced the daughter of the former President to four years of house arrest.
How to write a user of a social network, in 2012, a year after Karimova and her son was poisoned by “heavy metals”, “mercury, lead and zinc”, in Switzerland opened two cases “to close people who worked with my mother.”
Prosecutor”s office first told about the verdict Gulnara Karimova, said RBC chief editor of the portal “Fergana.ru” Daniel Kislov. “The Prosecutor General’s office of Uzbekistan in 2014, once said that Mr. Karimov without specifying its position and the fact that she is the daughter of the President, was arrested and convicted, but it was casual and it was quite clear that we are talking about it,” he said.
“Today, everything is clear. But there remains a lot of questions: why the court was not open, did there lawyers adequately why they waited so long, how long will be investigated by the second criminal case” — said Kislov. According to him, Gulnara Karimova, have been sentenced to house arrest, but now such norm in the Criminal code does not already exist. “She sits under house arrest by the verdict and still sits under house arrest because of the investigation of a new business. It is curious that in the fall or winter of 2015, the amendments to the criminal code that a sentence may be house arrest, not jail or prison. And in the fall of last year, this rule was removed from the Criminal code. Under house arrest she is now — maybe because the law is not retroactive. But the feeling that it was made specifically for her fate,” — said Kislov. According to him, about Gulnara Karimova is not known since March 2014, “when she came out on the Internet.”
