JET-SETTING DJ — THE COUSIN OF AZERBAIJAN’S PRESIDENT ALIYEV — ACCUSED OF RECEIVING MILLIONS IN SUSPICIOUS FUNDS

On 29 June, an article from OCCRP reported that “Mikaela Jav” made a name for herself as a DJ on Ibiza and OCCRP reveals that she is Izzat Khanim Javadova, a cousin of Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev. (Javadova’s stage name, Mikaela, is the name of her 22-year-old daughter).  Over the past few years, she and her husband, Suleyman Javadov, have been the targets of an investigation by the UK’s NCA into millions of pounds that the NCA suspects are the proceeds of “corruption, theft or embezzlement”.  They are said to have received £13.9 million from questionable origins.  They used a network of 20 opaque companies based in mostly offshore jurisdictions to receive the funds in their UK accounts, according to the NCA, and it identified 6 of these companies as being part of the “Azerbaijani Laundromat”.
