Don’t care: Dubai ruler to runaway wife

Dubai: Prime Minister of the UAE Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum on Sunday told his wife, who is believed to have fled with 31 million pounds and two children, that he does not care whether she dies or lives. He also asked her to go to "who you have been busy with".

Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein is the sixth wife of Dubai's billionaire ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. According to the reports, Haya Bint Al Hussein fled the United Arab Emirates (UAE) along with their two children following the break-up of their marriage.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid also told Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein that Haya Bint Al Hussein's lying days are over and it does not matter "what we are and what you are".

The wife of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is believed to be in hiding in London. The princess, the half-sister of King Abdullah of Jordan, is said to be seeking a divorce after initially fleeing to Germany with her children Jalila, 11, and Zayed, seven, where she requested political asylum.

She is understood to have taken 31 million pounds with her to start a new life, reports say. Oxford-educated Princess Haya has not been seen in public since May 20 and her social media accounts, which are usually full of photos of her charitable work, have not been active since February.

Unconfirmed reports in Arab media say that a German diplomat helped the princess "escape" from Dubai, leading to a potential diplomatic crisis between the two countries.

It is claimed that German authorities refused a request from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Maktoum to return his wife to Dubai. Two sources close to the Dubai royal family were cited as saying by media reports that Princess Haya has indeed left the country and is seeking a divorce.
