Abbie Emmett died when she fell from a hotel window while on honeymoon in February
Dubai police have reopened the case of a British bride who died while on her honeymoon in Dubai, it has been reported.
Abbie Emmett, 27, who was newly married to ex-superbike legend Sean Emmett, died in February when she fell from a hotel window, with her death recorded as suicide at the time.
Her husband, 43, said last month he had been stranded in Dubai ever since with his passport confiscated by authorities.
He was fined AED2,000 ($550) for drinking alcohol without a licence.
However, The Mirror on Wednesday reported that prosecutors were re-examining her death at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel in Garhoud.
Her father Christopher Elson told the tabloid: “We’re aware of this development.”
An official at Dubai Public Prosecution said they were investigating whether Abbie was murdered, Dubai-based newspaper 7DAYS reported.
He said Emmett’s passport had not been returned because he had not paid his fine.
The couple tied the knot in South Africa before flying to Dubai.
Britain’s Foreign Office has said it is unable to interfere with the UAE’s legal process.
