Dubai ruler’s captive daughter writes to police over about the abduction 20 year ago

Sheikha Latifa, one of the daughters of the ruler of Dubai, has sent a written letter to the British police asking them to reopen their investigation into the kidnap of her older sister from a street in Cambridge in 2000, the BBC reported on this regard on Thursday.

In a handwritten letter read by the British broadcaster in 2018, Latifa asked Cambridgeshire Police to refocus on the case of her sister Shamsa, now 39, who was captured aged 18 and has not been seen in public since then. 

Besides, Dubai government's media office also did not immediately respond to a request to comment on this matter.

However, the Cambridgeshire police confirmed it had received a letter that was written in February 2018, in relation to the case and that it was part of an "ongoing review".

Latifa, 35 herself is the subject of international concern. In a video message filmed in a bathroom and was obtained by the BBC, she said she was being held captive in a barricaded villa.

The UAE last week informed Latifa was being cared for at home by family and medical professionals.

The two women's father, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, has rejected the allegation by a London High Court judge who said last year that he accepted as proved allegations that the sheikh had ordered the abductions of his daughters.

Britain has called on the United Arab Emirates to provide proof that Latifa was still alive.
