“The Uzbek Case” is a famous criminal case about misappropriations, baksheeshes and misuse of public funds in the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic in 1970s-1980s. The case greatly stirred among the public, and it was no wonder – more than 800 criminal cases were launched against more than 4000 people. They all were convicted on different criminal articles and sentenced to prison with total confiscation of property, particularly the loot.

  1. Can someone make a small summary of what the heck was that all about? Famous? Maybe, but i didnt understand a word of it, not do i remember anything even reminding that.

    Some people confiscated alot of money and jewelry? Why? From whom? Stolen? Did original owners get them back?

    And what the heck are ‘baksheeshes’?
