Amnesty calls for Dubai Princess Latifa's freedom
In a press release issued on the 6 month anniversary of Princess Latifa’s disappearance, Amnesty International called for release of Princess Latifa Al Maktoum, daughter of the Ruler of Dubai, after being abducted by Indian and Emirati special forces during an attempt to flee the country to seek asylum in America.
The UAE and Indian governments are urged “to investigate and hold to account all officials implicated in unlawful acts in the course of its raid on the Nostromo, including arbitrary detention and physical abuse which may rise to the level of torture.”
The organisation calls on the UAE to grant Sheikha Al Maktoum full and unrestricted freedom of movement and communication with the outside world; to investigate allegations of her mistreatment in detention, from 2002 to present; and to take measures to hold accountable officials at any level who may be complicit in holding her incommunicado.
