It was announced today in the United Arab Emirates that Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Minister of Finance, passed away at the age of 75.

This came in a tweet on Twitter by his brother, the ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Sheikh Hamdan held the position of Minister of Finance in the United Arab Emirates since 1971 and remained in his position until his death. He had fallen ill over the past few months and underwent surgery abroad in October.

The Dubai Government Media Office said in a tweet on Twitter that “the funeral prayer that will be held in the soul of the deceased will be limited to family members due to the Corona epidemic.”
