Cashing a fake story of Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s daughter Sheikha Latifa bint al Maktoum, who also is known as Princess Latifa, a Finnish woman named Tiina Jauhiainen has been consistently lying to the media with the ulterior motive of making tons of money by sensationalizing the matter. Following February 16 release of a video message of Princess Latifa, which is being claimed to have been recorded inside toilet of a ‘villa jail’, most of the mainstream media in the world are covering the matter. Most of these media outlets are falsely portraying Marcus Essabri as Latifa’s cousin and David Haigh as her campaigner. In reality – Tiina Jauhiainen, David Haigh and Marcus Essabri are band of scammers. David was convicted in a number of fraud charges in the United Arab Emirates and Britain, while court in the UK has confiscated his properties. Marcus Essabri’s claim of being Princess Latifa’s cousin is utter lie. He has not been able to produce any evidence except for a forged letter from Princess Shamsa that he showed to 60-Minutes program in an Australian broadcast network. As the letter was challenged in investigative reports in Blitz, Essabri has stopped showing that fake letter.
Marcus Essabri, the fake palace insider
According to Marcus Essabri, a 48-year-old hairdresser – his mother is the sister of one of Sheikh Maktoum’s six wives. But, according to our own investigation, it was proved beyond doubt that none of Sheikh Mohammed Maktoum’s wives have a nephew in Britain. Moreover, there is no Moroccan wife of the Dubai ruler.
Essabri told the BBC show how he lived with Sheikha Shamsa Bint Maktoum [known in the West as Princess Shamsa] and her siblings in Dubai palace when he was aged between 12 and 14. In the Victoria Derbyshire show on BBC Marcus Essabri claimed to have seen Sheikha Latifa Bint Maktoum [known in the West as Princess Latifa] in the United Kingdom when she was 9 or 10. So it was in 1995 and Marcus has been living in London since 1987 and never had returned to Dubai.
But according to our investigative journalists, Sheikh Latifa did not visit the United Kingdom at the age of 9 or 10. She spent a couple of months in Long Cross Estate in Britain in 1999 for a couple of months when she was 14. It means, Marcus Essabri actually never met Sheikha Latifa.
The photograph Marcus showed to BBC audience to prove his presence in Dubai and his connection with Sheikh Shamsa Bint Maktoum is totally fake. The girl in the picture dated December 12, 1986 is not Sheikha Shamsa at all.
Sheikha Latifa (33) was born on December 5, 1985 and until 1995 she lived in Zabeel Palace and then reunited with her sister Sheikha Shamsa at their mother’s house. Shamsa was born in 1981. Latifa was 16 years old when she first ran away and was captured at the Oman border.
According to Marcus Essabri, Shamsa wrote a letter to him in September 1999 and Marcus had shown the letter to the audience of the Australian broadcast network’s 60-minute show. This letter too is fake. This is not from Sheikha Shamsa as well. Because, being an Arab, Shamsa would never write a letter to her relative in English.
Marcus Essabri claimed to have been transitioned
Essabri [also known as Jinn Possession Marcus told the TV show that he transitioned to a man in 2009 – just 10 years ago. Experts seeing his photo said, penis reconstruction on transsexuals requires skin transplant taken from the forearms, which leave scars. None of the pictures of Essabri’s forearms show any sign of scars from surgery, meaning this claim itself is also totally false. Marcus was born a man and has never been a woman.
Most interestingly, Marcus Essabri has also portrayed as ‘Dubai princess’ by David Haigh (watch the video at the end of this report).
The first show on the Australian broadcast network was arranged by an individual named David High, who is a well-known fraud and liar. The same man had also played an important role behind the BBC program.
Since the interview on BBC started getting controversy and some newspapers began investigating the case, Marcus Essabri hurriedly cleaned up all of his information from online and deleted his private photographs on Facebook. But, before he had done this, the team of investigative journalists of Blitz had already collected all necessary evidence from his social media accounts.
Exposing Tiina Jauhiainen’s lies
BBC also highlighted another scammer named Tiina Jauhiainen, who told the show that she was threatened of being placed alongside the “Al Qaeda” men in Dubai’s prison. Our team has checked all of Tiina’s interview ever since she was expelled from Dubai. In none of the interviews, Tiina Jauhiainen had mentioned this Al Qaeda stuff. It was clearly understood by our team that this gang of scammers and fraud led by David Haigh are now trying to get media’s attention by incorporating false information and statements.
Never get surprised, if Tiina Jauhiainen would claim, she was raped in Dubai or if Marcus Essabri says, his mother too had slept with Sheikh Mohammed Rashid Al Maktoum and Marcus is his illegitimate child.
After all, frauds can always come up with any new statement to cover their previous lies. But, of course, by airing this program and giving coverage to some scammers, BBC itself has evidently proved – British Broadcasting Corporation has certainly gone rogue.
A band of frauds and criminals
Marcus Essabri aka Jinn Possession Marcus has been brought into the show by a convicted fraud named David Haigh. David is also a self-declared bankrupt. Back in May 2020, English court has ordered David Haigh to re-pay millions of dollars in money he was convicted of siphoning off.
Radha Stirling, the owner of a company named Detained in Dubai has issued a fraud alert against David Haigh.
David Haigh has been successfully fooling the British and Australian news media in particular with fake story related to Princess Latifa, most definitely with the ulterior motive of hiding his record of being a fraud and a bankrupt.
For months, David [later Tiina Jauhiainen as well has been making frantic bids in establishing Marcus Essabri as a palace insider and a maternal cousin of Princess Shamsa and Princess Latifa. Our investigative team has already checked with the authorities in Dubai, who said, there is no such maternal cousin of the Dubai princess, nor this man has ever met any of the members of the royal family. According to the source, Marcus Essabri is a con artist – a creation of David Haigh and Tiina Jauhiainen racket.
