Hoax centering Dubai Princess resurfaces in the media


Less than 36 hours of publication of an investigative report in BLiTZ revealing jaw-dropping information on how gangs of international scammers, swindlers, fraudsters and criminals are cheating hundreds and thousands of females throughout the world impersonating as Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, The New Yorker has published a shocking and lengthy report claiming Sheikha Latifa bint Maktoum (also known as Princess Latifa), daughter of Dubai’s ruler stating:

For more than half her life, Latifa had been devising plans to flee her father, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the leader of Dubai and the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates. Sheikh Mohammed is an ally of Western governments, celebrated for transforming Dubai into a modern power. Publicly, he has placed gender equality at the heart of his plan to propel the UAE to the top of the world economic order, vowing to “remove all the hurdles that women face”. But for his daughter Dubai was “an open air prison”, where disobedience was brutally punished.

In her teens, Latifa had been ferociously beaten for defying her father. As an adult, she was forbidden to leave Dubai and kept under the constant surveillance of guards. Escape presented a challenge of “unfathomable immensity”, Latifa knew. “It will be the best or last thing I do”, she wrote. “I have never known true freedom. For me, it’s something worth dying for”. (I have drawn details of Latifa’s experience from hundreds of letters, e-mails, texts, and audio messages that she sent to friends in the course of a decade).

Latifa had kept her plan secret for years as she laid the groundwork: training in extreme sports, obtaining a fake passport, and smuggling cash to a network of conspirators. By the time she revealed the scheme to Jauhiainen, she had already hired a yachtsman to collect her off the coast and convey her to India or Sri Lanka, from where she hoped to fly to the United States and claim asylum. She just needed help getting to the rendezvous point, sixteen miles offshore, in international waters.

Jauhiainen is a sturdy, forthright woman, with high cheekbones and ice-blue eyes. She had grown close to Latifa while giving her capoeira lessons on the palace grounds, and wanted to help her see the world. “I was so excited”, she told me. “Finally, we will be able to do this together”. She’d promised to accompany Latifa all the way to freedom.

It is easily understood that the abductors of Princess Latifa namely Tiina Jauhiainen and Hervé Jaubert are behind the entire essay published in The New Yorker. They have done this with the notorious plot of extorting millions of dollars from the Dubai ruler. It may be also mentioned here that, earlier it was also reported in the media that Hervé Jaubert took over one million dollars from Princess Latifa, whereas now the figure has changed to US$50,000.

In The New Yorker essay, there are two paragraphs that can actually expose the criminal faces of Hervé Jaubert and Tiina Jauhiainen. In the first paragraph it is said:

“Since agreeing to help free Latifa, Jauhiainen had been meeting with Jaubert in Manila [Hervé Jaubert lives in the Philippines with his wife Raquel Marquez, and both were on Interpol’s Red Warrant List], where he lived, finessing the escape plan and delivering cash to settle his expenses, along with a set of diamond jewelry that she said Latifa planned to sell when she reached America. Jauhiainen travelled to Indonesia, Sri Lanka, the US, and Singapore to make preparations and assemble equipment: a dinghy motor, scuba gear, Garmin satellite navigators, and two powerful underwater scooters. But, practicing the subaquatic swim in her mother’s pool, Latifa had felt dangerously dizzy, so Jauhiainen had proposed an alternative plan”.

Plot to extort US$300 million from Dubai ruler

The in another paragraph it is said:

“Soon after setting out, Jaubert contacted a lawyer in Florida and asked her to draw up a “settlement agreement,” demanding three hundred million dollars from Sheikh Mohammed on Latifa’s behalf. Because Latifa did not have a bank account, he wrote, the money “should be transferred directly to my account in the Philippines”. He would split it evenly with Latifa and Jauhiainen, he promised. Latifa told Jauhiainen that she had gone along with the plan just to appease Jaubert, knowing that her father would never pay. (Jaubert denied pressuring Latifa; he said that the settlement had been her idea, and that his share was to serve as payment for aiding her escape)”.

From the itinerary of Tiina Jauhiainen covering her travel to many countries to plot the so-called fleeing of Princess Latifa, it can be easily understood, how much of money Tiina Jauhiainen and Hervé Jaubert had extracted from the Dubai Princess. In the same report, The New Yorker also mentions another woman named Radha Stirling, a cohort of Hervé Jaubert, who runs a fraudulent organization named ‘Detained in Dubai’. According to media reports, Radha Stirling is an associate of Al Qaeda.

From the report published in The New Yorker, it is also revealed that Hervé Jaubert and Tiina Jauhiainen were plotting of extorting US$300 million from the Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, which is clearly a serious criminal offense. It may be added here that, Raquel Marquez, wife of Hervé Jaubert is a woman with criminal past.

It may be mentioned here that, back in February 2022, Sky News published a report quoting Princess Latifa, where she said to be living a free life.

The New Yorker report has already been quoted and republished in a number of newspapers including Insider, The Indian Express, and The Telegraph India. Meaning, it is clearly a well-orchestrated fresh propaganda of Hervé Jaubert, Tiina Jauhiainen, Radha Stirling, Raquel Marquez and other members of this international crime racket.
