Milan, February 13 - A Milan judge indicted six
ex-managers of the ENEL power company on manslaughter charges
Wednesday for worker-deaths allegedly caused by asbestos
exposure.
Judge Elisabetta Meyer ruled that manslaughter charges must
be faced by Francesco Corbellini - chairman of ENEL from 1979 to
1987 - as well as five other people, all former managers at the
Turbigo power plant in Milan.
The case revolves around eight workers who died of the most
common form of asbestos-caused cancer, pleural mesothelioma,
from 2004 onward.
The prosecution maintains that the workers breathed
asbestos dust while working in ENEL’s Turbigo power plant in the
1970’s and 1980’s, and that management failed to follow safety
norms to protect the workers against exposure.
The first hearing in the trial will be held May 15.
The trial against ex-ENEL managers is one of a series of
Milan probes in recent years against ex-company managers accused
of allowing workers to be lethally exposed to asbestos.
A trial regarding the Pirelli tire company is already
under way, while another is due for a preliminary hearing within
the next few days.
