UAE and India refuse to respond to UN legal challenge of Sheikha Latifa’s disappearance

The Indian and Emirati authorities have failed to respond to legal proceedings which were filed at the United Nations concerning the disappearance of Sheikha Latifa al-Maktoum, the daughter of the Emir of Dubai.

According to Al Bawaba news, neither the UAE nor India have yet given the UN Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary Disappearances a response, which they are meant to do in order to allow the case to proceed.

It is unclear why the UAE and India have refused to respond to the challenge, which would allow the UN Working Group to make a legal decision, the sources added.

In March 2018, a video posted to YouTube showed Princess Latifa, 32, describing an escape attempt she made as a teenager. She said that the attempt failed, and she was brought back to Dubai where she was imprisoned, severely beaten and psychologically abused on the orders of her own family.
