Rome, October 22 - The president of Italy's
scientific committee for assessing major disaster risks on
Monday slammed convictions in a controversial trial concerning
the 2009 earthquake in L'Aquila.
"This is the death of service provided by professors and by
professionals to the State," declared physicist Luciano Maiani,
the current president of Italy's Committee on Major Risks.
A court found the former second-in-command of Italy's civil
protection agency and six others guilty of multiple manslaughter
over a 2009 earthquake in the central city of L'Aquila that
killed over 300 people and left tens of thousands homeless.
The court sentenced the accused to six years in prison for
falsely reassuring residents before the 6.3-magnitude tremor.
The defense had argued that it was impossible to predict
major quakes.
