Tagline : Dedicated to my daughter...her life...and her death...

Gender : female

Description
On 16 November 2014 my daughter Laura Vanessa Nunes, a Portuguese national and on a tourist visa to Dubai, fell 148 floors to her death from Burj Khalifa At the Top Sky observation deck. After the tragedy the police requested the Burj Khalifa and Emaar Property Group to make the gaps between the glass panes smaller. Which they did. Since my visit to the observation deck they have added a security bar in the middle of the gaps.
My daughter's death was covered up by the Burj Khalifa, the Emaar Property Group and the Government of Dubai. Despite having the original Coroner's Report in both English and Arabic \xa0stating that her body was found on the 3rd floor of the Burj Khalifa the Police claim that she fell to her death from the 14th floor of her apartment at the Jumeirah Lakes Towers in downtown Dubai. This was then changed to ' cannot confirm which building she leapt from'. Caught out in their lies. My daughter was not staying at the Jumeirah Lakes Towers. She had been staying in Room 309 of the Abidos Hotel Dubailand at the time of her death. My daughter was a young woman who lost her life, slipping effortlessly through a gap in \xa0the panes of glass just above the handrail, and the Burj Khalifa secretly changed the configuration of the glass panels and gaps twice, firstly aligning the gaps on the same level and making them smaller, and after my visit, when I put my head through the gap, placing horizontal security bars in the middle of the spaces. The observation deck now has a strong security presence. A pity all these things weren't in place when my daughter fell to her death. They would have noticed her when she put her head through the gap and then rushed to the back of the observation deck. They would have stopped her. SHAME ON YOU EMAAR!!!
