Statement on Mary Robinson

LONDON: 19th March 2021

The Free Latifa campaign can confirm today that it is in contact with the former President of Ireland and former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson.

Mary Robinson and ourselves are working on parallel tracks towards our shared aim of ensuring safety and securing freedom for Sheikha Latifa Al Maktoum in the near future.

The Free Latifa campaign would like to thank Mary Robinson for her commitment to Latifa. We will not be making further statements in relation to this at this time.
