Representing Princess Latifa before the UN Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary Disappearances (WGEID) which is considering her case. She has not been seen in public for over 2 years following a failed attempt to escape from her family in Dubai in March 2018 when she was captured off the Indian coast while fleeing from the UAE.
Princess Latifa’s father Sheikh Mohamed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE.
