The Story of Latifa’s Escape

On the night of March 4th, 2018, the daughter of the Ruler of Dubai disappeared.

At the time of her disappearance, Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed Al Maktoum was attempting to escape her tyrannical father in the company of trusted friends.

Their yacht was intercepted, and its crew and passengers transported back to the UAE, leaving Princess Latifa back in the hands of her furious father – Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Since that evening, no one had seen or heard from Latifa.

Then, on 24 December, 2018 three photographs were released by the authorities in Dubai showing Latifa with Mary Robinson, the former President of Ireland (1990-1997), and former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (1997-2002).

However, the photos showed Latifa appearing frail and only raised further questions as to her safety and wellbeing. Mrs. Robinson has repeatedly failed to answer the many questions put to her challenging her assertion that Latifa is safe. and presumed to be held in captivity in Dubai on the orders of her father.

We are seeking to raise awareness of this abuse of her human rights and seek her safe release, so that she may enjoy the freedom she’s so dearly sought.
