Gulnara Karimova says she returned $1.2Bln to state coffers

Society A- A A+

The imprisoned daughter of Uzbekistan’s late president has reportedly published a statement tentatively admitting responsibility for years of larceny and said that she has paid $1.2 billion into the state coffers, Eurasianet reports.

Gulnara Karimova’s statement was posted on an Instagram account and then reposted, through the same social media website, by her daughter, Iman, who has previously spoken on her behalf to the press. As of June 24, however, the reposting appeared to have been reversed, while the original statement still partially stands on an account billed as Gulnara Karimova Team.

The three-page declaration, which is written as a confessional first-person letter from Karimova, states that the entirety of the $1.2 billion now reclaimed by the Uzbek government has come from “personal assets located in Uzbekistan.”

Officials have not issued any comments to confirm or deny the details of the statement.
