Princess Sheikha Latifa Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum is one of the 30 children of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, prime minister and vice president of the United Arab Emirates and the ruler of the Emirate of Dubai. She has been missing since March 4.
According to Latifa, she fled Dubai via boat to escape years of torture and imprisonment by her father.
The following video made by Latifa was uploaded to YouTube by Latifa’s attorney who was instructed to do so in the case of her death or disappearance. The video expresses her desire to escape the UAE and her concerns that, if it is being shown, she and her friends are in danger or dead.
In the video, Latifa also describes the failed escape attempt by her older sister Shamsa and a previous escape attempt she made in 2002. After being captured, she relates how she was tortured and imprisoned for more than three years. She states that her father and his men are responsible for the murders of family members and as well as countless others.
