IslamNews – The U.N. human rights watchdog said on Friday it has asked the United Arab Emirates for more information about the status of Dubai’s Sheikha Latifa and proof that she is alive.
The BBC’s investigative news programme Panorama on Tuesday published a video it said was of Latifa, one of the ruler of Dubai’s daughters, saying that she was being held against her will in a barricaded villa.
The OHCHR agency had approached the country’s permanent mission in Geneva on Thursday, she said.
The Dubai media office earlier this week referred questions about the video to Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed’s law firm, which has not responded to a request for comment.
Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum drew international attention in 2018 when a human rights group released a video made by her in which she described an attempt to escape Dubai.
