ICBU Sends Letters to the Human Rights Council and the Governments of Germany and Britain to Protect Princess Haya bint Al Hussein from the UAE Regime

 

International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU) has sent official letters to the Human Rights Council and the governments of Germany and Britain urging them to offer full protection to Princess Haya bint Al Hussein, the wife of Dubai ruler, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, after fleeing the UAE to Germany for political asylum and divorce and then from Germany to Britain. Princess Haya, the 45-year-old daughter of former King Hussein of Jordan, has fled the UAE with her seven-year-old son Zayed and the 11-year-old girl Al Jalila. According to press reports, German diplomacy helped the princess escape the UAE, and Germany rejected a formal request from the UAE to extradite the princess and her sons. The princess is currently in Britain.

In its letter, the boycott campaign exposed the crimes and grave violations committed by the UAE from its crimes against women and foreign workers and imprisonment of journalists, opinion leaders and academics and on the other hand its war and violations in Yemen and its secret prisons in the UAE. The campaign warned that the UAE criminal regime would try day and night to kill, hijack and return Princess Haya and her sons to the UAE, as was the case with Princess Latifa Al Maktoum, the daughter of the ruler of Dubai. Where the UAE regime kidnapped Princess Latifa from the India coasts, and the same happened with Princess Latifa’s sister Princess Shamsa, who was kidnapped from the streets of Cambridge in Britain in 2000 and returned to the UAE.

UAE is still violating the human rights especially women rights and equality in front of the law, 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 on a daily basis, whether in the war in Yemen or with neighbouring countries, 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.
