The daughter of Dubai’s powerful ruler mysteriously vanished last month after she attempted to escape the clutches of her overbearing father, a former French spy said Monday.

Herve Jaubert told the Associated Press he helped Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed Al Maktoum, the daughter of Dubai’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, escape her homeland earlier this year. Latifa claimed she was being abused and needed to leave the overbearing clutches of her father.

The last time Latifa was seen by her friends was last month when commandos intercepted their sailboat in the Arabian Sea and dragged her away, kicking and screaming, the friends said. Jaubert said it was likely that Latifa was taken back to the United Arab Emirates.

The article goes on to state the following:

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is an incredibly powerful man in Dubai. He not only rules Dubai but is the Emirates’ prime minister and vice president. He is believed to have several dozen wives. Some of his sons and daughters figure prominently in local media and online, but others are rarely seen.

Sheikh Mohammed has multiple daughters named Latifa. In recent weeks, one of those Latifas has appeared frequently in the media in the country. The appearances could be an attempt to muddy the picture as local media now make no mention of the Latifa who allegedly tried to leave.
