The princess known as Sheikha Latifa had not left Dubai, the glittering emirate ruled by her father, in 18 years. Her requests to travel and study elsewhere had been denied. Her passport had been taken away. Her friends’ apartments were forbidden to her, her palace off-limits to them.
At 32, Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum went nowhere without a watchful chauffeur.

I tried to help Dubai’s Princess Latifa to escape – a year on, I dream of her release
Tiina Jauhiainen tried to help her best friend leave her stifling, traditional existence as the daughter of Dubai’s ruler. But in a dramatic intervention at sea, the princess was returned to the UAE. A year on, Jauhiainen is campaigning for Latifa’s freedom.
Jauhiainen says she won’t rest until Latifa is free. She spends her days running the #FreeLatifa campaign full-time. “Sometimes it’s hard,” she says. “The sad reality is that I have a whole government against me. It’s been difficult to get people to see Latifa as a normal woman who has been oppressed her whole life and not just a princess. But Latifa always wanted her story to be heard. She can’t tell it now, but I can, so I feel I have to be her voice.”
Latifa’s story is supported by human rights organisations such as Detained in Dubai and Human Rights Watch, and is under investigation by the UN’s Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, to which Jauhiainen gave evidence in Sarajevo last month.

SOMEWHERE in the United Arab Emirates is a 33-year-old woman who fears for her life.
Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum – or Princess Latifa, as she is best known - is being held against her will by her father, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
The same man is the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of the Emirate of Dubai.
He is also the head of the powerful Godolphin racing stable, a worldwide operation which has achieved some of its best success in Australia. (...)
Princess Latifa is an intelligent woman who grew up wanting to help others. Now she needs our help.
Public pressure and genuine consequences from within the racing industry is the best way to drive change.
The Australian public blew up (rightly) when Israel Folau posted a discriminatory image on his Instagram account.
In Latifa's case, she needs that kind of outcry. Look up her story, educate yourself on the facts and push for change.
The racing industry has the power to save a young woman's life. How could you possibly do nothing?

Herve's book
This book is a tribute to Sheikha Latifa and a reminder that she is still being detained against her will in Dubai. Latifa is a modern day hero who should be applauded for what she has attempted, this book will be a deterrent to those who want to harm her.

I wonder if this will go by unnoticed at the Derby this year. They struck him where it hurts him the most this time. Way to go!

The issue seemed to have gone completely unnoticed in Australia at the time of last year's Melbourne Cup. I was furious when Sheikh Mohammed's horse won.

Looking at the cover of the book it looks like a story of someone who wants to be special. But I doubt the book would be a reasonable way to support the Sheikha. Rather it benefits him by getting profits. Very sad to see her story is used be other parties abroad for their own agenda.

Tiina has given a new photo to this press release

Two more of Princess Latifa’s close friends have joined Free Latifa campaign director and Latifa’s best friend Tiina Jauhiainen to manage the official campaign to free Princess Latifa.
Latifa’s close friends Stefania Martinengo and Marko Remes have joined the campaign team to work alongside Campaign Director and Princess Latifa’s best friend Tiina and Human rights lawyer and campaigner David Haigh.
Following a number of third parties seeking to claim the ability to represent Princess Latifa, whilst simultaneously seeking to promote unauthorized and inaccurate books, and movie scripts on her brave life story, whilst Latifa remains detained, Latifa’s closest and longstanding friends have felt the need to come even closer together to protect Latifa’s name, legacy and tell the true story of Princess Latifa’s bravery - dedicated simply to Free Latifa.

Tiina Jauhainen wrote on Sunday, Mothers Day, a letter to Latifa's mother

Press release from Detained International

Today, on international mothers day, Tiina Jauhiainen, the best friend of kidnapped Dubai Princess, Sheikha Latifa Al Maktoum has called on Latifa’s estranged Mother Houria Lamara to help free Latifa.
In a heart warming letter, sent today to Latifa’s mothers home at her family home of Al Wasl Road Palace, Dubai - Tiina said
“I am writing to you to respectfully as that you help me in freeing your daughter. Please help set a good example for this world, please do the right thing and help free Latifa”
“I am not a Muslim, but having lived in Dubai for many years I respect your faith. It is my understanding that the holy month of Ramadan is said to be a month of compassion and forgiveness. It is therefore that during the holy month of Ramadan and today on mothers day that I respectfully appeal to you not just as a human being, a Muslim but as a mother not to continue being complicit in the arbitrary detention and abuse of your daughter Latifa and to help Latifa and bring an end to her suffering.”

The letter was released together with never seen before family photos of the Al Maktoum family. In the very personal photos Latifa’s mother is seen publicly by many for the first time.
On the release of the never before seen photos, David Haigh a human rights lawyer and campaigner working on behalf of Latifa said “thanks to many of Latifa’s close friends we now have hundreds of unreleased pictures and videos of Latifa and her family. She entrusted these to her close friends before her escape attempt with the instructions to use them as necessary”.

Spy who helped Princess Latifa escape Dubai seeks legal action against satellite company he alleges divulged their location, leading to attack on Nostromo & abduction of all onboard.
Herve Jaubert, the ex-secret service agent and captain of the Nostromo, has announced plans to file a lawsuit against PLC Satellite provider KVH, Rhode Island NY, who, he alleges in his latest book, Princess Latifa & the Spy, disclosed his position following the high-profile escape of Princess Latifa from Dubai back in March, 2018.
Jaubert said in his statement, "in the US we believe in freedom of speech, freedom of sovereignty and the unalienable right to protection in law. America has always championed the rights of men and women and yet these basic human rights were denied to an innocent young woman whose only crime was to reach out. Princess Latifa was given no assistance and denied her right to asylum.”
Herve Jaubert has known Princess Latifa for over 7 years and continues to campaign for her freedom. He has established “The Latifa Trust”, a US charity in her name, to help the many women who are subject to abuse in the gulf region and has released “The Princess and the Spy” in hope to raise awareness of her plight and to help Latifa tell her story, a story the whole world needs to know.
Hervé Jaubert told Detained in Dubai “I wrote Latifa's story for the world to know what she tried to achieve in her bid for freedom. She is now a model to many other women in the Middle East . It is also to clear some misconceptions on what happened. The book also includes things that have never been said before and some stunning revelations on the cause of her capture and the attack on Nostromo and the crew.”
