Princess Latifa: UN yet to see proof of life from UAE

The UN says it has not yet seen evidence that the daughter of Dubais ruler is alive, two weeks after seeking proof from the United Arab Emirates.

Princess Latifa Al Maktoum tried to flee the country in 2018. In footage shared with BBC Panorama, she claims commandos drugged her as she fled by boat and flew her back to detention.

Contact from her has since stopped.

Dubai’s royal family has previously said she is safe and being “cared for at home”.

The footage of Princess Latifa prompted calls for a UN investigation. Last month, the UN confirmed it had asked the UAE for proof that Princess Latifa was alive. But on Friday, it said that there had been no progress so far.

Spokesman Robert Colville said there had been meetings with the United Arab Emirates diplomatic mission in Geneva , Switzerland , but when asked if proof of life had been received, he replied: “Not yet, no”.
