National Crime Agency (NCA) is all set to investigate allegations of money laundering against Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein. According to information from a source within NCA, during past one decade, the daughter of Jordanian King Hussein has brought in and sent out a huge amount of money through illegal channels, which, according to British law is a criminal offense. If found guilty, Princess Haya may face arrest and imprisonment in the United Kingdom.
Meanwhile, British intelligence agency MI5 and MI6 are also going to begin an investigation against Haya for her alleged connections with notorious terrorist Dawood Ibrahim’s transnational narcotics, arms and counterfeit currency trafficking network named D Company. It is alleged that Princess Haya as well as some of the members of the Jordanian royal family, including Queen Rania and Haya’s full brother Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein are also having connections with D Company and have been making millions of dollars through narcotics trafficking. Jordanian royals reportedly are using the privilege of diplomatic “pouch” in trafficking narcotics to several Western nations.
In another development, according to British newspaper The Guardian, Lord Stevens, the former Metropolitan police commissioner, has been caught up in the royal family dispute between Princess Haya of Jordan and her estranged husband, Sheikh Mohammed of Dubai.
The latest twist in the domestic row is allegedly overpayments to Quest Global Ltd, a private risk management and security firm with headquarters in central London.
The company chairman is Lord Stevens, a distinguished senior policeman who led a series of inquiries into collusion in Northern Ireland. Since joining Quest he has conducted investigations into equine doping, corruption in Premier League football transfers and F1 racing.
Documents seen by the Guardian, show that payments made to the company dating back to 2016 are being challenged by the government of Dubai’s legal affairs department. There is no suggestion of wrongdoing by Quest.
An audit of accounts controlled by government and entities funded by Sheikh Mohammed “have raised serious concerns in relation to payments made to Quest Global going back as far as 2016”, according to a letter sent by Dubai’s legal affairs department to Martin Smith, CEO of Quest Global.
Examination of the accounts has resulted in the Sheikh’s “audit unit” “conducting a full audit of all past payments made to Quest Global”. The firm has provided private security for the princess. Five years ago it also cleared the Sheikh of having any knowledge of drug-related incidents in the horse racing industry.
