Sindika Dokolo’s death was not a “criminal act”

Dubai police said today that they do not suspect any “criminal act” in the death of Congolese businessman Sindika Dokolo, husband of Isabel dos Santos, businesswoman and daughter of former Angolan President José Eduardo dos Santos.

Sindika Dokolo died on Friday in a diving accident in Dubai.

“We do not suspect any criminal act in the death of businessman Sindika Dokolo, 48, who drowned while snorkeling in the north of the island of Deira,” the emirate police said in a statement.

On 29 October, the authorities received “an emergency call” and maritime rescue teams were “immediately dispatched,” said Lt. Gen. Khaled Ibrahim al-Mansuri, deputy investigative commander.

Sindika Dokolo practiced a form of diving, locally known as ‘al-hivari’, which does not use breathing equipment and is based on the exclusive use of the air in the lungs.

The statements by friends of the businessman and the medico-legal report allowed “to conclude that there is no suspicion of crime in this death,” said the general.
