As a parent and grandparent,mine and my husband thoughts are their should be a placef for all the families that have lost loved ones,where they can got to spend a quiet moment, as they need time to grieve for those they have lost. There are other malls where you can shop. Personally I or my husband will never shop there again.

I think Mr & Mrs Weeks should be filing for damages if thats at all possible within this legal system. Im sure they could get suitable & effective representation and in doing so, they should do their damdest to make sure justice is served. Qatari officials dont seem to be doing very much. I live in Doha, and I remember being blown away after hearing that the ivestigation into the mall fire had been conducted and final... after a short period of time!! I also expected that it would have been sprearheded by experienced international fire investigators, but in fact it was spearheaded by a local official. This is appalling, and if Mr & Mrs weeks dont take a more aggressive approach, this all may be quietly swept under the carpet so to speak. I believe two of the three accused failed to appear for the first court hearing. I am sickened by all of this, because I too have heard so many disturbing and horrifying acounts of all things that went wrong that & may have contributed to deaths of the children and child care workers. Someone should be held accountable and responsible. In a western country these irresposible people would be convicted of manslaughter! If the tables were turned, and I for instance casued the death of a Qatari child through negligence, I would be subject to a life in prison, or even worse! Signed, a very angry Australian expatriate.

To Craig: Have you ever asked for the licence of your kids' school or nursery? No one does because it's the government job to do so, and it's cruel to blame the parents of these beautiful babies. They have lost their love ones and they would have never put their kids in a dangerous place. Please, have some respect for the memories of the victims.
