No foul play is suspected in the death of businessman Sindika Dokolo,48, who drowned while practising free diving in the north of Deira Island.
Major General Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant Commander-in-Chief for Criminal Investigation Affairs, stated that, on Oct.29, 2020, the Command and Control Centre at the General Department of Operations received an emergency call about a person who drowned while practising freediving near Umm Al Hatab Island, north of Deira Island.
“The incident happened seven nautical miles away, and accordingly, marine rescue teams were immediately dispatched to search for the man who was found deceased after performing a free dive locally known as "Al-Hiyari"- a form of underwater dive that relies on breath-holding rather than the use of breathing apparatus such as scuba gear,” Major General Al Mansouri explained.
Al Mansouri indicated that Dubai Police investigated the circumstances of the death and listened to statements of the deceased's friends and reviewed the results of the forensic report, all of which concluded that there was no criminal suspicion behind the death.
The victims testified that the defendant had threatened them saying 'If you go to the police, I will kill you both.'
