UAE: Domestic problems, major UAQ desal
Dubai family dispute: Family issues have brought Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum (MBR) into an unwelcome light – which will be amplified when, as widely expected, the case goes to court in London. His wife Princess Haya Bint Al-Hussein has fled the UAE with their two children – Zayed, aged 7 and Jalila, aged 11 – to seek sanctuary in Europe. Haya, a daughter of the late King Hussein and sister of Jordan’s King Abdullah II, married MBR in 2004 and has had the most public exposure of his wives.
