Princess Latifa, a daughter of Dubai’s ruler who claims to have been held in captivity by her father since 2018, has asked UK police to re-investigate the kidnapping more than 20 years ago of her sister, Princess Shamsa, according to a letter reported by the BBC.
The BBC reported that in a letter handwritten in 2019 – but passed to Cambridgeshire police on Wednesday – Latifa says the police may be able to free Shamsa, who was abducted on the orders of her father when she was 19.
“Your help and attention on her case could free her,” Latifa reportedly wrote

Am I the only one that thinks there is a sinister explanation of the name of the new Children’s Hospital ‘The Phoenix’.
That name is not simply a quaint metaphor from history.
It has active and occulted meanings in Freemasonry, Satanism and a range of esoteric sub cultures.
In ‘The Secret History of the IRA’ Ed Moloney points out that Gerry Adams and Co. selected it as the logo of then then young Provisionals…
To quote Jordan Maxwell:
“The Purpose of Signs and Symbols. Signs and symbols are not merely for decoration or random meaningless marks without purpose. Signs and symbols have real, specific and precise meanings. Also, signs and symbols usually have ONE PURPOSE — to identify, and the identification is expressed in two ways — (1) by showing ownership, and (2) by showing direction.”
Seems clear to me that our very own ‘deep state’ just spoke.
And nobody suspects a thing?

The Phoenix magazine today asserts that Sally and Tom Fitzgerald – after having been told by Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald that the Justice Department will review the Garda investigation into their daughter Kate’s death – are unlikely to “open a second front in their pursuit of the facts about the death”.
The ‘second front’ the magazine is referring to is how The Irish Times issued an apology to Kate’s employer, The Communications Clinic, after it published an article identifying Kate as the author of a previous anonymous article in which, among other things, Kate wrote about how she suffered from depression and detailed how she was treated at her workplace.
Along with the apology, The Irish Times stated Kate’s original article contained “significant assertions which were not factual”.
Later, the Irish Times blacked out the article in its entirety on the newspaper’s online archive.
To this day, Kate’s parents do not know what ‘assertions were not factual’.
Further to this, The Phoenix also writes:

Last year’s National Newspapers of Ireland award winners
The Phoenix magazine is reporting that the National Newspapers of Ireland Awards will not be taking place this year because Independent News and Media has pulled out due to “costs”.
INM has five national titles out of 16 NNI members and owns most of the 25 provincial member titles.
The magazine reports:
“The run-up to the awards judgements [last year] involved several fraught sessions of the judges panel …”[Judges panel chairman Michael] Brophy suggested that voting for journalist of the year – the three contenders were [Kitty] Holland, [Paul] Williams (the Anglo Tapes story) and David Walsh (the Lance Armstrong exposé) – be by secret ballot to avoid leaks as in previous years and that the winner be known only to the panel’s secretary until the night of the awards. Despite being agreed by the judges in advance, the night of the vote witnesses…[INM executive on the panel Ian] Mallon then called for a vote on the vote issue which produced a tiny minority for his proposal and so the vote proceeded in secret with the result being that the Williams scoop not only failed to clinch it but was beaten into third place.”
UPDATE: Not so, according to informed sources (taps nose), the show may go on. More to follow.
