Azerbaijan's elites illegally purchase property in Czech Republic

"Officials of oil-rich Azerbaijan, including members of the Aliyev ruling family, have established companies in Prague, bought land, and built hotels and luxury villas most of them focused around in the famous spa city of Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad).

The problem is that some of these investments are illegal.

The full extent of their investment became clear after reporters for the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) examined the Czech property and company records of prominent Azeris.  The political elite, it appears, has been playing a real life game of Monopoly in a race to acquire properties in the heart of the European Union."
