The British National Crime Agency has seized jewelry worth more than $500,000 from Christie's auction House. The move is part of an investigation into vast wealth accumulated by a woman from Azerbaijan Zamira Hajiyeva. Her lavish lifestyle included spending more than $21 million at the London department store Harrods. Here is Dominic Casiani. Last month Zamira Hajiyeva, the wife of a jailed state banker from Azerbaijan was named as the first ever target of the new anticorruption power. The court order against her means she must explain how she could afford to buy an £11 million London home and a Berkshire golf course, or face losing both. Christie's had been valuing 49 pieces of jewelry for Mrs Hajiyeva's daughter. The pieces include a sapphire ruby necklace from luxury brand Boucheron worth up to £120,000. It's not confirmed whether any of the items were part of Mrs Hajiyeva's decade long Harrods shopping spree.
