Zamira Hajiyeva, the wife of the former chairman of the International Bank of Azerbaijan Jahangir Hajiyev, has been arrested in London.

Axar.az reports citing BBC that Hajiyeva, who lives in a £15m house near the London store, became the first person to be served a UWO by the National Crime Agency last month. The law allowing such inquiries was adopted to fight corrupted foreign officials and money laundering in Great Britain.

Hajiyeva attracted the attention of law enforcement bodies for luxurious way of life. She purchased the real estate for GBP 22,000,000 and spent nearly 16,000,000 in Harrods.

Hajiyeva insists that all the funds were legal and addressed to court with a request to stop NCA investigation.

But this week it came out that NCA seized nearly 50 expensive jewels that were passing pre-sale evaluation at Christie's.

The most expensive item seized is a Boucheron sapphire and ruby necklace worth up to £120,000.
