Princess Latifa, the daughter of Dubai’s powerful ruler Sheikh Mohammed has not been seen for months. As Tom Steinfort reports, it’s a story as intriguing as it is unbelievable. Not even the creators of a James Bond film could come up with a plot as intriguing and frightening as this. Thirty-two-year-old Princess Latifa is the daughter of Dubai’s all-powerful ruler, Sheikh Mohammed. She was born into a life of extreme wealth, but there was one thing her money couldn’t buy: freedom. Four and a half months ago, with the help of a former French spy, she made a daring escape. Yet for all the meticulous planning she failed spectacularly, and on the high seas somewhere between Dubai and India the runaway princess’s yacht was intercepted. Latifa was kidnapped by heavily armed soldiers and hasn’t been seen since.
