Third autopsy performed on British tourist

UK authorities have ordered yet another post mortem as part of investigations into the death of 39-year-old British tourist Lee Brown who died in Dubai prison last month, reported '7Days'.

A third autopsy and fresh set of forensic tests will be carried out. “A completely independent post mortem is being carried out here and if we want, the family could also have its own carried out," Brown’s sister-in-law Susanne was quoted as saying by the paper.

The police and the UAE Attorney General’s office have already carried out two post mortems. And the cause of his death has been found to be suffocation - after Brown choked on his own vomit.

However, Susanne and Lee’s brother Steve say many of their questions remain unanswered.

Meanwhile, Dubai Police say Brown violently resisted arrest when officers were called to the Burj Al Arab Hotel after an alleged assault on a chambermaid.
