HRW calls on UAE authorities to reveal Sheikha Latifa’s whereabouts

United Arab Emirates authorities should immediately reveal the whereabouts of Sheikha Latifa bin Mohammad al-Maktoum, the 32-year-old daughter of the ruler of the Dubai, and clarify her legal status, Human Rights Watch said today.

In a statement issued Saturday, HRW considered the failure to disclose the whereabouts and status of the princess as an enforced disappearance.

“The UAE authorities should immediately reveal whether they are detaining Sheikha Latifa and her whereabouts and that of all others they are detaining incommunicado,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch.

Human Rights Watch has documented numerous incidents of enforced disappearances by UAE authorities in recent years.
