Wife Of Dubai’s King Escapes The Country With Her Children
One of the wives of Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Princess Haya bint Al Hussein has reportedly escaped Dubai and flew to Germany with her two children. She is the daughter of Jordan’s late king and the sister of current King Abdullah. She married into the Al Maktoum dynasty in 2004. Daughters of Al Maktoum, Princess Shamsa and Latifa had attempted to flee the country in 2000 and last year respectively but got caught and returned to Emirates.
Princess Haya bint Al Hussein fled with her son Zayed and daughter Al Jalila aged 7 and 11 and sought asylum in Germany with the help of a German diplomat according to The Daily Beast. The rumours first surfaced the media on a website Emirates Leaks on June 23.
Al Maktoum shared a poem on Instagram showing his anger, betrayal and frustration. The poem is titled” You Lived And You Died” and the lines say
“You betrayed the most precious trust, and your game has been revealed
Your days are lying over and it doesn’t matter what we were and what you are”
People are responding to this news supporting the fled wife. Everyone is well aware of the oppression against women in Emirates, of how they are deprived of their basic human rights. Dubai is a highly chauvinist country and women around the region have been trying to seek asylum in other countries but failing constantly. The German government has not announced Princess’s presence in their country yet, stay tuned for updates.
