ICBU Demands the Revelation of  Sheikha Latifa’s Fate after being Kidnapped by the Indian Coast Guard and Deported to Dubai

 

International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU)  called on UAE authorities to reveal the fate of the 34-year-old sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the daughter of the UAE’s prime minister, after being kidnapped by the Indian Coast Guard and deported to Dubai. Where media reports said Sheikha Latifa disappeared off the coast of Java after posting a video saying “This may be the last video.” The campaign said in a statement that it had asked the UAE authorities more than once to reveal the fate of Sheikha Latifa but did not respond.

Sheikha Latifa was prosecuted for expressing her views on her life, the life of her sisters, the lives of women in the United Arab Emirates and the restrictions imposed on freedoms, inequality and lack of freedom to make crucial decisions. The campaign warned the UAE against harming the life of Sheikha Latifa and called for international intervention to know the fate of Sheikha Latifa and to immediately release her from the grip of the UAE government.

 

ICBU calls on the international community to intervene immediately to stop human rights violations in the UAE and to force the authorities in the UAE to respect human rights laws. ICBU also called on all countries that respect human rights laws and the free world to boycott the UAE because they violate human rights daily, whether in the war in Yemen or with neighbouring countries or citizens or residents.

ICBU said it was launched in the light of the endless violations of human rights practiced by the UAE, in addition to its war crimes in Yemen and violations of workers’ rights, as well as the fact that the UAE is the centre of modern slavery. The United Arab Emirates today is one of the leading countries in trafficking in human beings and is one of the main supporters of terrorist groups in Syria and other parts of the Middle East.
