“In the context of the investigation into the conditions and causes that led to the death of Sinead McNamara, acting as the attorney-at-law of her parents, I declare that the family is expected from the Greek authorities to respond to the causes and circumstances of her death, the full investigation of the events and incidents that occurred prior to her death in the Mayan Queen IV yacht, in particular given the fact that the deceased had communicated by telephone with her mother and brother shortly before the unfortunate incident under investigation. She was crying and referred to an incident that took place on the yacht with another crew member.
The parents also state that Sinead was not having any problems, she often communicated with her family and she was happy. In two (2) days she would return to her family and her friends in Australia.
For these reasons, the family finds it crucial to thoroughly investigate both the conditions of death and the events and incidents that preceded this event in order to reveal the full truth and learn what actually happened and led their twenty-year-old daughter to death.
