London (CNN)The details of an Azerbaijani woman's £16 million ($20 million) spending spree in luxury London department store Harrods have been revealed, as part of the UK's first investigation into unexplained wealth.
Court papers reveal how a jailed banker's wife spent $20 million at Harrods
Zamira Hajiyeva blew through £600,000 ($760,000) in a single day and spent millions on designer fashion brands, jewelry and perfume. She also spent £30,000 ($38,000) on chocolate in a single purchase, and racked up bills of £1 million ($1.3 million) in the store's toy department.
Hajiyeva, the wife of a jailed Azerbaijani banker, is the first person to be targeted with Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWOs) in the UK, following the introduction of so-called "McMafia" anti-corruption laws last year.
She has been ordered to explain the source of the spent funds, as well as how she and her husband could afford their pricy properties. One of the homes owned by the pair -- an £11.5 million ($15.1 million) house in Knightsbridge -- is just a short walk from Harrods.
Court documents detailing her decadelong spending spree, reported by British media outlets including the Press Association on Tuesday, include £4 million ($5 million) spent at luxury jewelers Boucheron.
Hajiyeva also tore through £1.75 million ($2.2 million) at Cartier, a luxury jewelery and watch maker. A £1.1 million ($1.4 million) Cartier diamond ring was later seized by the UK's National Crime Agency (NCA) as part of the probe.
She dropped £250,000 ($317,000) in Harrods' perfumery, and more than £100,000 ($127,000) each at luxury brands Dennis Basso, Celine, Fendi and Christian Dior, the records show -- with each spree occurring in single payments.
£30,000 ($38,000) was spent in one day at Belgian chocolate maker Godiva, and £2,400 ($3,040) more was spent on wine and spirits in another purchase.
