Wikileaks: Governments and Mobsters Living The Good Life

Out of the latest batch of leaks from Wikileaks today, we have a small look into the connection between the family's of Uzbekistan government officials and Tashkent mobsters that live a lavish, gifted life. This leak states that videos of events have been acquired to show the lifestyle they live.

Salim did not attend the party, but provided each guest with a necklace worth $1,000.

The video shows Jamol handing out $100 bills to the guests as they dance. (Note: It is common in Uzbek culture for money to be given to women as they dance, and also to musicians. End note.)

But you can't have these sorts of parties at the local bar or pub! So these mobsters have their homes decorated by only the top, highly-exclusive decorators to entertain their guests in style.

Our contact told Poloff that Salim's Gazelkent home was decorated by a Versace representative flown in for the job. Photos of Salim,s house reportedly appeared last year in the Russian magazine "Vysshee Obshchestvo" ("High Society").

It goes on to tell how this mobster is building a palace for himself, while his wife daughters.....OH, and his lovers will stay in the "old" mansion.

According to our contact, Salim has now built another "palace," which will be his preferred dacha, while the Gazelkent estate will reportedly be used by his wife, lovers, and daughters.

This relationship continues into the "sale" of government jobs. A separate leak tells this tale.

A well connected Embassy contact described a mafia chieftain's role in helping businessmen to secure GOU tenders and job applicants to "buy" government jobs. Crime boss Salim Abduvaliyev puts bidders for tenders in touch with an Iranian businessman holding British citizenship, who submits the paperwork to First Daughter Gulnora Karimova for approval.

It is my assertion that this sort of government/mobster connection is rampant across the globe. Global crime organizations are embedded into the fabric of our governments makeup. This is not a smoking gun by any means, but it gives us a small look into the possible corruption that may lie within our own governments.

Governments and mobsters are living the good life doesn't surprise me all that much. What does surprise me is that there's actually a difference.

There is a huge difference.

The Mobsters are only concerned for their own welfare.

The government officials are only concerned for their own welfare while they are on the "people's dime". They have a job to do, and it is sad that most of us do not care if they do it or not.
