Dubais Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein has reportedly left her husband, the country’s Crown Prince leader, and is currently seeking asylum in Europe.

Reports say the princess has fled the country ruled by her husband, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is one of the world’s richest men.
It comes after one of the Sheikh’s daughter’s Princess Latifa fled Dubai last year, when she vanished off the coast of Goa.

Detained in Dubai, the human rights watchdog said they received multiple reports that Princess Haya had fled the Arab state.

The organisation's CEO Radha Stirling said: "Whenever someone applies for political asylum, obviously, it is because their lives are in danger, and because they have suffered severe abuses and violations of their human rights.

"We already know that Princess Latifa, Sheikh Mohammed’s daughter, fled the UAE seeking asylum and alleging unspeakable abuse at the hands of her father.

"Now, it seems, Princess Haya, Sheikh Mohammed’s wife, has also fled the country and sought refuge in Germany."

Apparently she fled Dubai with her two children and the help of a German diplomat to Germany, where she now has applied for asylum. The Crown Prince already demanded the German authorities to extradite her, but they are refusing. There seems to be diplomatic row going on now between Germany and Dubai.

Wouldn't Haya be a dead woman if she is forced to go back?

I can imagine that would happen, and for that reason she is granted protection in Germany.
It's interesting that she didn't choose to flee to the UK, where she studied and has more connections. She apparently didn't think the UK would protect her.

Makes you wonder what sort of information she might know and could provide for help.
