Dubai ruler found guilty of kidnapping his two daughters

Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum was found guilty of keeping his daughters Latifa and Shamsa captive and launching a harassment campaign against his ex-wife, Jordan’s Princess Haya.

UK High Court's family division has ruled that Sheikh Mohammed organised the kidnapping of Latifa, who attempted to flee Dubai in 2018, and her older sister Shamsa, who in 2000 temporarily escaped her family in the UK.

The court's order came as part of an acrimonious custody battle over Sheikh Mohammed and Princess Haya's children, which threatens to destabilise the UK’s diplomatic relationship with one of its closest partners in the Gulf.
