Radha Stirling sheds light on appalling rights for women in the Middle East

Luke Grant

Radha Stirling is a leading human rights advocate and lawyer, the founder of Detained in Dubai.

This organization assists foreign victims of injustice particularly in the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf States.

Ms Stirling tells Luke Grant about the appalling abuse of women’s right in Dubai and the story of Princess Latifa, who fled Dubai in 2018.

A British court ruling has found that the Princesses father arranged the kidnapping of the Princess and her sister.

Ms Stirling says “It was only due to the media campaign that we launched, and it was pretty difficult at the time too, because it’s a story of a princess escaping with a French spy. There’s massive military orchestration to bring them back. The media was really apprehensive to report it.”
