Newsflash: L'Aquila Earthquake Experts Found Guilty
22 October 2012 12:00 pm
In a verdict likely to spur extensive controversy, an Italian judge has ruled that seven earthquake experts are guilty of manslaughter in a case that charged them with providing flawed advice prior to the 2009 L'Aquila earthquake. The defendants are likely to appeal, a process that could last several years. The verdict also calls for damage payments that could amount to many hundreds of thousands of euros. More coming soon.
