“She is getting better and better and we hope she will return to the public at a convenient time,” the family wrote in a statement to the British Embassy.
Secret video footage
This week, a secret video footage was released in which Latifa, 35, says she is being held in a villa. His father, Sheikh Mohammed al-Maktoum, is believed to be responsible for the kidnapping.
After the images appeared, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights asked the UAE for proof that the princess was still alive.
With this statement, the family did not release any footage or disclose any other details about his health. “In response to all the media reports on Latifa, we would like to thank everyone who cared for her well-being, even though the stories do not at all reveal what the situation really looks like,” they write.
Latifa secretly recorded the messages with a phone, which she managed to obtain. According to the princess, several agents guard the building where she is located. The windows are locked and she cannot go out, she said. The princess is terrified. “Every day I fear for my life. I don’t know if I will survive this situation.
His father is the wealthy Sheikh Mohammed al-Maktoum, ruler of Dubai and vice president of the United Arab Emirates.
A British judge has concluded that it was proven last year that the Sheik had kidnapped Princess Latifa, one of his 25 children. Latifa tried to flee Dubai in 2002 and 2018, out of fear of her father.
