Unexplained wealth order
An unexplained wealth order (UWO) is a type of court order issued by a British court to compel someone to reveal the sources of their unexplained wealth. Persons who fail to account are liable to have assets seized after the National Crime Agency makes a successful appeal to the High Court. The first Unexplained Wealth Order was issued in 2018, to Zamira Hajiyeva, the wife of Jahangir Hajiyev, the former chairman of the International Bank of Azerbaijan.
