New prosecutions against 5 new persons, managers of OSE, for the train tragedy in Tempe, brought by the prosecutor
By Panos Garoufalia
Criminal prosecutions by five executives of OSE exercised today by the director of the Larisa Appeals Prosecutor’s Office and supervisor of the investigation for the tragedy of Tempe, Stamatis Daskalopoulos.
After the consideration of evidence from the preliminary investigation conducted by the Appellate Investigator Sotiris Bakaimis Mr. Daskalopoulos prosecuted the following:
General Director of the General Directorate of the OSE Network from 21-3-2017 to 15-11-2019.
General Director of the same General Directorate from 1-12-2019 to 1-6-2020
Director of the Railway Systems Directorate from 1-4-2017 to 30-9-2021
Director of the Railway Systems Directorate from 1-10-2021 until today
Director of the E/M Systems & Electrification Maintenance Division from 1-10-2021 until today.
The above were exercised prosecutions for the same offenses but by omission, with those of the remanded Station Master and Inspector (by omission continuous disruption of traffic safety, by omission manslaughter by serial negligence, by omission serious bodily harm by serial negligence, by omission simple bodily harm by serial negligence). Despite the fact that they are by omission, the offenses constitute criminal charges.
In the meantime, next week it is expected to be clarified whether the experts will manage to read the recorded material, which may lead to new prosecutions either of new persons, or of additional charges against persons already accused.
