Shamsa Al Maktoum Kidnapping Case
Sheikha Shamsa al-Maktoum, now 38 but not seen in public since she disappeared at age 19, is the daughter of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum and Houria Ahmed Lamara, who is Algerian. His former riding instructor Lucy Stevenson said Shamsa “didn’t like authority” and hated pomp and circumstances. He recalled that when they rode on Chobham Common in Surrey, Shamsa delighted to gallop, forcing the bodyguard who followed him to try to reach him. Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed al-Maktoum, 35, is Shamsa’s younger sister. Enthusiastic paratrooper, her friend Tiina Jauhiainen estimated that the princess had made about 2,500 jumps before trying to flee Dubai in 2018.
“That used to give her a great sense of freedom,” said Jauhiainen. The Finnish national taught Latifa the Brazilian martial art capoeira on a daily basis from 2010. Jauhiainen described her friend to the court as “a great woman, kind, brave, intelligent, dedicated, honest but most importantly down to earth”.
