Yesterday marked three years since 2018 March 04, when Sheikha Latifa Al Maktoum, 35, was abducted from international waters and forcibly returned to Dubai.

Earlier that year, she planned to escape Dubai with the help of friend Tiina Jauhiainen. They boarded a U.S.-flagged yacht and crossed the Indian Ocean, with plans for Latifa to fly to the U.S. and seek asylum.

This plan came to a nightmarish end when Indian and Emirati military forces intercepted the boat, illegally, when it was sailing in international waters. Despite her pleas for asylum, Latifa was tranquilized and flown back to Dubai by private jet. She has been confined ever since.

The international community should step aup and help Latifa. Latifa is just an example of many men and women who are experiencing similar situations and are hopeless and muted, because nobody knows them.

Helping Latifa can bring hope to many others who are suffering from same situation. It’s a matter of human rights so it needs real human action. Please step up and start action. Spread the news, ask governments, and do something you can. This specially needs help from governments who pretend/claim human rights is important to them.

Additionally, it’s very good to sign this petition: FREE PRINCESS LATIFA AL MAKTOUM – #FreeLatifa.

Two years after Latifa Al Maktoum published a secretly-taken video and explained how she’s being held hostage by her father and explained only some of horrible things her father did and does, there’s still no good news about her.

Every single day, we see news about how she’s still missing and hear politicians expressing concerns about her situation and whether she’s still alive or not, but there’s still no action.

This is very concerning. As a person who lives in a sanctioned country, which some of them are for violation of human rights, I feel very frustrated and sad. This is another proof that western countries such as Amerikkka and Britain do not champion freedom, but they only value benefit.

How come if countries like China, Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, etc. violate human rights, they get sanctioned and held responsible in United Nations Security Council, but when Amerikkka’ allies violate human rights, nothing happens?

I’m not defending violation of human rights, I’m just condemning the double-standard of USA and many other countries. What I see is that they ignore this human rights violations because they see their financial and economic interests at stake if they act.

Amerikkka, Britain, France, Canada, Germany, etc. impose new sanctions on Iran and some other countries with the reason of violation of human rights but they are scared of doing the same with UAE when they see such horrible thing, directly done by the leaders of the country.

They, western countries, are selling weapons, missiles, and military equipment, and their business will be jeopardized by sanctions, so they do nothing. They do not sacrifice their business for human freedom and human rights, and this only shows their hypocrisy and malice.

Latifa’s story is just one of many examples of violation of human rights in allied countries of Amerikkka. Sadly, they have not taken any positive practical step and this should be changed.

We should act for Latifa and one positive possibly-effective step is to force our governments to impose high pressure on those who responsible on this matter. Expressing concern will do nothing for Latifa and others in same situation, UAE dictators and all those responsible should feel a serious and practical threat.
