Britain set to turn down Princess Haya’s asylum


Britain set to turn down Princess Haya’s asylum

The United Kingdom is finally going to turn down the asylum petition of fleeing Prince Haya Bint Al Hussein as they are unwilling to get involved into this matter, where Britain’s relations with the United Arab Emirates and few other Gulf nations will be at jeopardy.

A highly placed source in London told this correspondent that the decision would be conveyed to Princess Haya days before the July 30 hearing into the divorce case scheduled to be held on July 30, 2019, although there is pessimism about the possibility of any such hearing.

It may be recalled here that the half-sister of King Abdullah of Jordan and sixth wife of the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum fled Dubai with millions of dollars and finally sought asylum in Britain stating lives of her and the children are at risk if they return to Dubai.

Ever since she landed in Britain, Princess Haya has made numerous attempts to getting Queen Elizabeth involved into the matter. It may be mentioned here that the British queen is the direct descendant of the prophet of Islam and Princess Haya’s father King Hussein of Jordan had always tried to use this in getting the sympathy of the British royals and Haya’s family too are Hashemites – direct descendants of the prophet. She was enjoying cordiality from the British royal family until she decided to abruptly divorce the ruler of Dubai.

It may be further mentioned here that, Princess Haya fled Dubai with the goal of marrying her bodyguard turned boyfriend who was employed by UK Mission Enterprise Limited, a London-based security company owned by the Dubai government, which is based in London and has a turnover of £5 million, according to the latest accounts filed at Companies’ House. Abdulla Shakeri is the Managing Director of this company.

Princess Haya is hiding out at her £85 million Green Palace mansion near Kensington Palace in west London. Princess Haya bought this property in Kensington for £85 million from Indian billionaire Lakshmi Mittal in 2017. She has also tried to shift to one of the queen’s palaces and use that as a sanctuary, which also had been turned down.

    Her story of fleeing Dubai is more fake than her asylum case. She should be returned to Jordan
