Before clicking on that link I thought maybe Rakhimov one had some fraud thing or something, but it looks like he's basically a full-on maffia gangster :lol::facepalm:

yeah...

to be honest, he already has been vice-president since 1998...so, it's not gonna change things that much...I guess it's more of a public image problem, rather than an actual worsening of the already dramatic AIBA situation...

Nice to see that AIBA is roping in professionals to run their mafia family.
