(ANSA) – GENOA, 07 JUL – The first hearing of the trial for the collapse of the Morandi bridge, the motorway viaduct that collapsed on 14 August 2018, causing the death of 43 people, has begun. 59 people are accused, including former top management and technicians of Autostrade and Spea (the company that dealt with maintenance and inspections), current and former managers of the Ministry of Infrastructure and officials of the Superintendency. The accusations, for various reasons, are multiple culpable homicide, road homicide, willful collapse, omission of official acts, attack on transport safety, forgery and willful omission of safety devices in the workplace. For the prosecution, most of the defendants imagined that the bridge could collapse but they did nothing. Aspi and Spea came out of the process by negotiating about 30 million. (HANDLE).
