Dubai princess flees ruler husband with children and $56m

The Sun reports that the Princess disappeared in February and is believed to have fled to Germany along with their daughter and son.

Sheikh is reported to have ordered authorities in Berlin to return the Princess and his two children back to UAE but the directive has fallen on a deaf ear.

Princess Latifa, the Sheikh's 33-year-old daughter, fled the UAE last year seeking asylum, accusing her father of abuse.

Dubai's billionaire ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, whose daughter Princess Latifa fled the country previous year only to be captured and returned, has now found himself in a similar situation, except that this time it is his wife who has left the United Arab Emirates (UAE).


The title added that the princess, who attended boarding schools in the United Kingdom and is an Oxford graduate, had applied for asylum in Germany.

The Sheikh who is a keen racehorse owner missed this month's Epsom Derby for the first time in 28 years, with two of his showjump stables in Suffolk suddenly closing down, with a local course claiming that show jumping was Princess Haya's passion, not the Sheikh's.

The Daily Beast says that the poem concludes with the Sheik telling the princess that he doesn't care for her anymore.

Princess Haya is Oxford educated and is the daughter of the late king of Jordan, Hussein Bin Talal, and her official website is still active.


Sheikh Mohammed has denounced the treachery and betrayal by his wife, and wrote on Instagram, "Go to whom you get busy with!?"

Since her capture campaigners have been battling for Latifa's release claiming she is being "drugged" and kept against her will to prevent her from embarrassing her father.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Princess Haya bint Al Hussein attend day one of Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse in Ascot, England on June 17, 2014.

Her family say she is "safe" in Dubai. She's said to be now residing in a secret location in London. She added: "Whenever someone applies for political asylum, obviously, it is because their lives are in danger, and because they have suffered severe abuses and violations of their human rights".
