You thought it was a nice cute little thing to give your women cellphones. Then they accessed the internet.
Now, you’re getting what you deserve.
A Dubai princess who attempted to flee the city in 2018 says she’s being held against her will at a villa, where she’s banned from going outside or communicating with others.
Princess Latifa Al Maktoum, 35, says her father, billionaire Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ordered her unconventional detention after the failed escape, the BBC reported.
Latifa filmed a series of clandestine videos in a bathroom at the villa and sent them to her allies with the Free Latifa group, which shared them with the BBC.
“Every day I am worried about my safety and my life,” she says in one video. “I don’t really know if I’m going to survive this situation. The police threatened me that I’ll be in prison my whole life and I’ll never see the sun again.”
The princess’ friends, including martial arts trainer Tiina Jauhiainen and cousin Marcus Essabri, smuggled her a cell phone so she could film the videos, according to the BBC.
They told the broadcaster they decided to publicize the footage after not hearing from Latifa for an extended time.
If she’d never had a cellphone in the first place, then she would understand that it’s her father’s right to keep her in a villa if she is acting badly.
Where do you think she learned that she has “rights”?
“I don’t want to be a hostage in this jail villa. I just want to be free,” Latifa said in another released video. “I don’t know what they’re planning to do with me. So the situation is getting more desperate every day.”
She’s getting more and more desperate for attention, that is.
Sheikh Mohammed rules Dubai and has overseen the emirate’s transformation into a global city, which has helped make him one of the world’s wealthiest people. He is also Prime Minister and vice president of the United Arab Emirates.
Latifa, one of his many children, first attempted to leave Dubai in 2002 at age 16. The 2018 attempt, however, was much more elaborate and included help from Jauhiainen and former French spy Herve Jaubert.
The princess successfully escaped the city, and was on a yacht in the Indian Ocean when it was boarded by special forces soldiers who held her at gunpoint and returned her to Dubai. Latifa says she’s been detained ever since, with little hope of freedom.
Dubai and the UAE have previously said the princess was “safe” and in the care of family. But in a YouTube video released shortly after her recapture, Latifa said, “If you are watching this it’s not such a good thing, either I’m dead or I’m in a very, very, very bad situation.”
Or you’re a slut and a drama queen.
No one wants to listen to Spec.
And the same thing happens with all of them: they get what they deserve.
Choices have consequences.
If you don’t want bad consequences, then make better choices.
Giving women cellphone and allowing them on the internet were the worst conceivable decisions that anyone could ever make, on the entire earth.
