Among those acquitted were the former prefect of breaking latest news, Francesco Provolo (for whom a 12-year sentence had been requested) and the former president of the Province of breaking latest news, Antonio Di Marco.
At the reading of the sentence the screams of the families of the victims. “Shame shame. Injustice is done. Murderers.
Sold. You suck”. And one of the survivors of the tragedy Giampaolo Matrone, 39, who lost his wife Valentina Cicioni in the avalanche, addresses a threat to the judge: “it doesn’t end here”.
“We will await the evaluations of the sentence to evaluate the appeal. What emerges clearly is that the crime of culpable disaster has been canceled”, declares the head of the breaking latest news prosecutor Giuseppe Bellelli. (HANDLE).
