A Person must, as soon as reasonably practicable, provide the BHA with full details of any knowledge of:

approach or invitation made to them or any other person which would amount to a breach of these Rules; and

incident, fact or matter which may amount to a breach of the Rules

Ok here is a breach of the following rule .....

19 .A Person must not engage in conduct which the BHA considers is prejudicial to the integrity, proper conduct or good reputation of horseracing in Great Britain

The daughter of Dubai's ruler who tried to flee the country in 2018 later sent secret video messages to friends accusing her father of holding her "hostage" as she feared for her life.

In footage shared with BBC Panorama, Princess Latifa Al Maktoum says commandos drugged her as she fled by boat and flew her back to detention.

The secret messages have stopped - and friends are urging the UN to step in.

Dubai and the UAE have previously said she is safe in the care of family.

Ex-UN rights envoy Mary Robinson, who had described Latifa as a "troubled young woman" after meeting her in 2018, now says she was "horribly tricked" by the princess's family.

The former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and president of Ireland has joined calls for international action to establish Latifa's current condition and whereabouts.

"I continue to be very worried about Latifa. Things have moved on. And so I think it should be investigated," she said.

Latifa's father, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is one of the richest heads of state in the world, the ruler of Dubai and vice-president of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The videos were recorded over several months on a phone Latifa was secretly given about a year after her capture and return to Dubai. She recorded them in a bathroom as it had the only door she could lock.

In the messages, she detailed

she fought back against the soldiers taking her off the boat, "kicking and fighting" and biting one Emirati commando's arm until he screamed
after being tranquillised she lost consciousness as she was being carried on to a private jet, and didn't wake up until it landed in Dubai
she was being held alone without access to medical or legal help in a villa with windows and doors barred shut, and guarded by police

Sheikh Mohammed has built a hugely successful city but rights activists say there is no tolerance of dissent and the judicial system can discriminate against women.

He has a vast horse-racing enterprise and frequently attends major events such as Royal Ascot, where he has been pictured with Queen Elizabeth II.

Can we have a statement please ! It should go something like this ....

BHA is appalled by the panorama programme that appeared on February 16th.. We expect all those in our sport to demonstrate respect for human beings particularly their daughters.   People who work in our industry believe their values – of caring for and respecting human beings – have been deeply undermined by this behaviour. On their behalf, and on behalf of all racing lovers, we say unequivocally that British horseracing finds this totally unacceptable.

The BHA is considering its own regulatory options, recognising that the Dubai authorities are unlikeky to carry out their own investigation.
