Sultan of Dubai Loses Custody Battle for Children

Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, 47 will have sole custody and responsibility of the couple’s children after the a U.K. High Court ruled that Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum abused  her.

Sheikh Mohammed, the multi-billionaire ruler of Dubai, and prime minister of the UAE , will have no direct or face-to-face contact with his children and will only be allowed contact by indirect methods.

In the ruling, the judge  said Sheikh Mohammed “consistently displayed coercive and controlling behaviour with respect to those  members of his family who he regards as behaving contrary to his will”.
