My name is Tiina Jauhiainen and I believe you are concerned about global justice and also about the right of women to self-determination, in the hope that you can bring awareness to the plight of my best friend Princess Latifa Al Maktoum, the daughter of the ruler of Dubai.

Latifa was violently kidnapped in front of me at gunpoint on 4th March 2019, as she tried to escape decades of oppression and abuse in Dubai. 

Latifa's escape attempt is covered in the award winning BBC2 documentary "Escape From Dubai: The Mystery Of The Missing Princess"

Every individual, regardless of background, has the right of self-determination. That right was snatched from Latifa in what was effectively a state-sponsored kidnapping. Since then she has been held against her will.

I fear for her life and whatever torture she is enduring and I need your help to put pressure on respective governments and the international community to demand  her IMMEDIATE RELEASE by Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Latifa's freedom will be a victory to the tens of millions of enslaved gulf women living under this system. The UAE sponsors the enslavement of women and their police routinely tortures prisoners. Latifa has not only endured that as a child but she is currently arbitrarily detained and forcibly disappeared. Latifa is one of the millions of modern day slaves, yes a princess in a palace but also a slave. She never owned her own life.

Although her second escape attempt failed, it has allowed the world a glimpse into the lives of Emirati and Gulf women so her escape was not in vain. Many have been moved and inspired by her story. I have made it my personal mission to continue to spread her message of freedom as long as she remains imprisoned.
