Because of the pressuring demands of his colleague, a Filipino in Dubai committed suicide, as reported by Dubai OFW.
According to reports, the Filipino succumbed to death via suicide because his colleague pressured him to buy a new smartphone or he will expose several uncompromising photos of the Filipino together with another man.
The Filipino was found hanging from the ceiling of their bathroom in an apartment in Al Qusais and already expired when authorities found him. A suicide note was also left with the initials of the alleged suspect.
In a suicide note, the Filipino detailed how the Pakistani man pressured and intimidated him into agreeing to his unreasonable demands. He provided several details of the suspect that led to his arrest.
When authorities questioned the Pakistani, he admitted to threatening the victim into revealing intimate photos of the Filipino and another man. He also admitted that he acquired the photos from the other man in the photo. He then started blackmailing the Filipino into getting what he wants.
The photos were also sent by the suspect to the victim through WhatsApp, the authorities found out.
The trial will go on this January 13.
The identity of the Filipino remains hidden to avoid further issues. Condolence to the bereaved family.
