When Sheikha Latifa contacted Detained in Dubai, she shared copies of the following documents to provide supporting evidence of her identity. These included:
A photocopy of her UAE passport
Latifa’s passport indicates her date of birth and place of birth, as well as her photograph.
The passport also states she is a “Member of Ruling Family, Dubai”, making it clear she is the daughter of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
UAE Identity Card
Photos of the front and back of Latifa’s UAE Identity Card were provided. These display her name, date of birth, photo, and national ID number.
The above records include several of Latifa’s PADI and IANTD scuba diving certifications, GCSE certificates, and an FAA medical certificate relating to skydiving.
Proof of Identification
The sheer number of documents shared by Latifa, including her UAE Identity Card and photocopy of her passport, proved that she was indeed who she claimed.
