Indian media said on February 28 that a United Nations Expert Group asked India to release Christian Michel, a British arms dealer, and said that the Indian army had “assisted in the kidnapping” of a Dubai princess in exchange with Dubai to obtain Michel.

However, India refuted this claim, saying that the conclusion of the United Nations was based on “limited information” and was “biased accusation”.
British “Daily Mail” reported on February 26 that as part of the “prisoner exchange” against British arms dealers involved in bribery scandal, Dubai Princess Latifa was detained by Indian army and taken to Dubai to become her father’s “hostage”.
British media reported that in March 2018, rattifa, the daughter of Dubai chief Muhammad bin Rashid al Maktoum, was captured by Indian special forces on the coast of Goa, then drugged and sent back to Dubai. A few weeks later, Christian Michel, the British arms dealer, was extradited from Dubai to India.
At present, the United Nations has officially linked the arrest of Latifah with the extradition of Michelle, and asked the Indian side to release Michelle. Michelle has been accused of taking 41 million pounds in bribes in a deal to sell British made helicopters to the Indian president and other government ministers.

The working group on arbitrary detention (wgad) of the United Nations High Commissioner for human rights found that Michelle was extradited in a “de facto Exchange”. The report also said the charges against Michelle were politically motivated.
However, India refuses to accept the working group’s statement. Anurag Srivastava, spokesman for India’s foreign ministry, said: “we regret that the conclusions reached by the working group are based on limited information, biased allegations from unknown sources and an inaccurate understanding of India’s criminal justice system. The allegation on which the opinion is based is contrary to the facts. Therefore, the Indian government rejects this view. “
The spokesman added: “extradition is conducted entirely in accordance with the provisions of the extradition treaty signed between two sovereign states. The arrest and subsequent detention are carried out in accordance with due process of law. “
The report said that over the years, Latifa and her father have been strained, and she fled Dubai twice in 2002 and 2018 respectively. Latifah said she is now imprisoned by her father and threatened.

The chief denied all charges of abuse against his daughter, who was one of 30 children born to him and his six wives.
According to the daily mail, one of Latifa’s sisters, shamsa, ran to the UK in 2000 and was later taken back to Dubai by her father’s faction.
