A woman who spent £16m at Harrods and became the subject of the UK’s first Unexplained Wealth Order has been arrested and faces extradition
Zamira Hajiyeva is the wife of an ex-state banker who is serving a 15-year prison sentence for embezzlement in their home country of Azerbaijan.
Mrs 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.
Her lawyers says she is no “fraudster”.
The UWO means she has to explain the origin of her fortune.
