Police receive letter calling for new probe into Dubai princess’s kidnap

Cambridgeshire Police have confirmed they have received a letter relating to the disappearance of Princess Shamsa, a daughter of Dubai’s ruler.
It comes after the BBC said it has seen the letter from Shamsa’s younger sister Princess Latifa, calling for the police to re-investigate the case from 20 years ago.

The force said: “We can confirm officers have recently received a letter, dated February 2018, in relation to this case which will be looked at as part of the ongoing review.
“In addition to this we are also looking at the contents of the recent Panorama documentary to identify whether it includes anything of significance to our case.”
Cambs Police said the review into the princess’s disappearance on a Cambridge street in August 2000 is ongoing.

Shamsa was 18 at the time and has not been seen in public since.
The force said: “This is a very complex and serious matter and as such there are details of the case that it would be inappropriate to discuss publicly.”
