Gulnara Karimova taken from jail in ambulance
The daughter of former Uzbekistan leader Islam Karimov, Gulnara Karimova, was taken out of prison in an ambulance yesterday, her lawyer Gregoire Mangeat said.
The lawyer wrote on Twitter that he was waiting outside Uzbekistan’s Zangiota jail to see his client when the vehicle emerged.
He said a reliable source had told him Karimova was in the ambulance, Reuters reported.
Karimova, 47, was jailed in March this year for violating the terms of her house arrest after receiving a five-year sentence in 2015 on charges of embezzlement and extortion.
