Tiina Jauhiainen was interviewed yesterday by MTV Live (finnish live TV).
She fears Latifa is currently being medicated, like her sister and says that Latifa has always wanted to live an independent life.
- It is a difficult question what actions should be taken, Tiina admits.
However, she would like Western leaders to take a tougher line.
- So far, people have only taken a stand and been annoyed about the situation and told how worried everyone is about the situation. A tighter line should be taken and, if necessary, various sanctions should be included.
Tiina says the Free Latifa campaigner has asked the UN to send a task force to Dubai to investigate the matter.
A couple of weeks ago, the UN asked the United Arab Emirates for evidence that the princess is alive. Over the weekend, the Organization said no evidence was received.
The finnish Minister for Foreign Affairs, Pekka Haavisto, previously told finnish news agency STT that he had followed the news related to Latifa on a general level. Foreign Minister Haavisto said the matter had been on the agenda of telephone talks between Haavisto and the Foreign Ministers of the United Arab Emirates as part of a wider human rights debate.
Tiina says that she appreciates the support of minister Haavisto, but she thinks that such discussions should not happen within the four walls, the talks should have made in public.
Tiina hopes that Finland will follow the example of Britain and make a public statement on the matter.
- I would also like Prime Minister Sanna Marin to take a stand on the matter, especially now that Finland has applied for membership of the Human Rights Council, Tiina says.

Mary Robinson to join the campaign

A lawyer and friend of missing Princess Latifa of Dubai says former president Mary Robinson has vowed to "help in the campaign to free her" and has a "critical and key" role to play.

The captive daughter of Dubai's ruler, who is reportedly being held hostage by her father, was previously described by Mrs Robinson as a "troubled young woman".

The former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights was forced to apologise after a photograph of her and the princess went viral in 2018 and re-emerged last month as part of a BBC Panorama broadcast.

UN calls for proof of Latifa is alive

https://edition.cnn.com/2021/04/10/middleeast/un-concern-princess-latifa-intl/index.html

(CNN)The United Arab Emirates has not proven that Princess Latifa bint Mohammed Al Maktoum, the missing daughter of Dubai's ruler, is alive, the United Nations has said.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said Friday it has asked the UAE for "proof of life" for the Princess, but has not received it.

Amnesty International/Finland organizes a virtual demonstration on 23rd April
Demand freedom for princess Latifa! #FreeLatifa
Princess Latifa escaped Dubai in March 2018 with her friend Tiina Jauhiainen. Her escape was cut short when special forces seized their ship in international waters. Latifa, Tiina and the ship's crew were returned to the United Arab Emirates. Latifa has been a prisoner for the past three years.
Princess Latifa has not committed any crimes. Her imprisonment violates her right to freedom. She must be released immediately!
Join our virtual demonstration and show your support to Latifa! Participating is easy: share a picture of Latifa in social media and add tag #FreeLatifa. .
Virtuaalinen mielenosoitus_ #FreeLatifa

GENEVA (20 April 2021) – UN human rights experts* today called on the Government of the United Arab Emirates to provide meaningful information on the fate of Sheikha Latifa Mohammed Al Maktoum, as well as assurances of her safety and well-being, without delay. Sheikha Latifa is the daughter of the Emir of Dubai and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
