Dubai government legal department is challenging payments made to company chaired by Lord Stevens

Princess Haya of Jordan is understood to have fled Dubai and her husband, Sheikh Mohammed.

Lord Stevens, the former Metropolitan police commissioner, has been caught up in the royal family dispute between Princess Haya of Jordan and her estranged husband, Sheikh Mohammed of Dubai.

The latest twist in the domestic row is allegedly over payments to Quest Global Ltd, a private risk management and security firm with headquarters in central London.

The company chairman is Lord Stevens, a distinguished senior policemen who led a series of inquiries into collusion in Northern Ireland. Since joining Quest he has conducted investigations into equine doping, corruption in Premier League football transfers and F1 racing.

Documents seen by the Guardian, show that payments made to the company dating back to 2016 are being challenged
