It seems that after all they are running not one but 3 different inquest not regarding mis-managing the situation but to know why a maritime police died. It turns out that he was wearing a live vest with an automatic system that did not worked when he hit the water. They keep it secret while they were running the inquiries but today come to the public that was the main object of the investigation. He would be probably alive if the life vest had worked properly.
