Azerbaijan: Suspect real estate deals in Dubai

Thoughts on the Road comments on recent news reports that $44 million in real estate deals were recently made in Dubai in the name of a 12-year old who happens to have the same name and date of birth of the Azerbaijani president's son. Another $35 million worth of deals were also reportedly made in the name of the president's two daughters. Learning to Walk in Stilettos also comments on the news by saying that while the reports might be new, the problem of corruption in the oil-rich country is not. Meanwhile, Emotions on Air, Mind Mute, a blog in Azerbaijan, simply responds to the news by quoting the lyrics of the song ‘F**k You’ by Lily Allen.
