Newspaper Aftenposten reported on Thursday that Aa and Espen had received the warnings and concerns about possible corruption via email four years ago from other still-unidentified Telenor employees who’d been dispatched to work at VimpelCom. The warnings issued in August and September of 2011 concerned payments of USD 30 million to a company called Takilant, which later proved to be a so-called “postbox” company registered in Gibraltar with no employees and believed to be controlled by Gulnara Karimova, daughter of the man who still rules Uzbekistan, formerly part of the Soviet Union.
