London has become the foremost city for foreign oligarchs and dictators to hide and launder their money. This piece of work looks at the corruption of the first family of Azerbaijan who have hidden millions of pounds of money embezzled from the public coffers of Azerbaijan in the London property market. They have also engaged in a strategy of reputation laundering, characterising Azerbaijan as a modern and liberal nation, and themselves as patrons of the arts. Azerbaijan routinely ranks near the bottom on the press freedom index, and its elections are not considered free and fair.
