Dubai police chief 'certain' all Hamas hotel murder suspects are in Israel

Latest update : 2010-03-01

Dubai police chief Dahi Khalfan (pictured) said on Monday he is sure that all the suspects in the January killing of Hamas leader Mahmud al-Mabhuh are now in Israel. Dubai is convinced the suspects are all members of Israeli secret police Mossad.

AFP - Dubai police chief Dahi Khalfan said on Monday he is sure that all the suspects in the killing of a Hamas leader in a Dubai hotel room are now in Israel, where they will be able to avoid arrest.
  
Mahmud al-Mabhuh, one of the founders of Hamas' military wing, was found dead in his hotel room in Dubai on January 20. Police on Sunday said he had been drugged then suffocated.
  
"I am sure that all the suspects are in Israel," Khalfan told a media conference in Abu Dhabi.
  
"If they stay in Israel, they won't be arrested, but eventually if they leave they will be arrested", the police chief added.
  
Twelve British, six Irish, four French, one German and three Australian passports were used by the 26 people believed linked to the murder, according to Dubai police, who say they are convinced Israeli intelligence service Mossad carried out the Cold War-style hit.
