Herve Jaubert


Captain of Nostromo

Campaign Advisor, Free HRH Sheikha Latifa Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Herve Jaubert is the Captain of the US registered pleasure yacht Nostromo, the yacht on which Princess Latifa and her friends were on board when they were sailing towards her new life.

As well as being a close friend and confidant of Princess Latifa, Herve is a loving father, brother, husband and son. A dual French and US national. He served his birth country of France for the French Counter-espionage at the DGSE, the French Secret Service for almost 15 years.

A successful submarine builder, former French Naval Officer and Marine Engineer, in 1993 he left the DGSE and moved to the US where he invented and developed a complete line of recreational submarines and combat frogman submersibles.

In 2004, Sultan Bin Sulayem, the Chairman of Dubai Government owned and now indebted Dubai World, visited Herve’s submarine factory in Florida and offered him a partnership to build and develop submarine manufacturing company in Dubai.

Herve moved to Dubai with his family, transported his operation and created a state of the art factory. Soon, he fell victim to a corrupt system and megalomaniac leaders who forced him to surrender his passport, held him hostage, coerced him to surrender his assets and threatened him to be tortured and imprisoned indefinitively.

After he sent his family back to the US, he went into hiding and dressing like an Emirati woman to plan an escape of the country without his passport. Two months later, he executed a harrowing escape on a rubber dinghy. Once in high seas he waited for a friend at a rendez vous to pick him up with the sailboat Herve had purchased earlier from the brother of the President of the UAE under a phony identity, then sailed to India and returned to the U.S.

It was Herves own brave and daring escape from Dubai that first connected Princess Latifa to Herve.

Herve now spends his time campaigning for the freedom of his friend Princess Latifa.
