Ex Spy & Latifa’s Friend Reveal Their Story To The Mail
When the Nostromo, the yacht carrying Latifa II, Crown Princess of Dubai, was ambushed near to the coast of India – she wasn’t the only occupant taken prisoner. Alongside the Princess, ex intelligence officer Herve Jaubert and her close friend Tiina Jauhiainen were also captured and claim they were then imprisoned in the UAE.
Princess Latifa Bids To Escape Her Father, & The UAE
The communications made by Princess Latifa II to Detained In Dubai (see here) made clear she was attempting to leave Dubai, the UAE and her father in order to live a life of freedom. Accompanying the Princess was loyal friend, Finnish martial arts instructor Tiina Jauhiainen.
The pair are pictured above having managed to leave the UAE and reach neighbouring Oman.
Within days they had both boarded the Nostromo, a US registered yacht, captained by dual French/American national Herve Jaubert,
Jean-Pierre Hervé Jaubert
Herve Jaubert, aged 62, is a former intelligence officer who holds dual French/American nationality. He shot to fame after he escaped an arrest warrant, which was widely discredited.
Mr Jaubert was wanted by authorities in Dubai following financial issues with a business venture. He managed to evade them by scuba diving from the Emirates and subsequently wrote a novel on his exploits.
Jaubert agreed to assist Princess Latifa in her bid to flee the Emirates by taking her from the Middle East to India aboard his yacht, The Nostromo. However, the vessel was subsequently attacked and comandeered 50 miles from the coast of Goa.
Herve & Tiina’s Interview
Following the attack on the Nostromo, which prompted an SOS from Princess Latifa to Radha Stirling of Detained In Dubai, all 3 disappeared and were missing.
However, both Herve and Tiina were subsequently ‘released from custody in the UAE’ and on 10 April 2018, after several statements through solicitors and Detained In dubai, the pair gave a full interview to the Daily Mail.
The article published by the Daily Mail following the interview can be viewed here.
Herve and Tiina told how they were beaten and blindfolded following the yacht’s capture. Herve explained the Nostromo was surrounded by 5 warships prior to the hostile boarding.
Both told of their experience in jail in the UAE, where death threats were commonplace. Herve was told he had broken ‘Islamic Law’ by assisting Princess Latifa II in her quest to escape Dubai. This was due to her being ‘property of her father.’
