Puglia train crash fruit of corruption (2)

Station masters probed for manslaughter, culpable disaster

(ANSA) - Rome, July 14 - Tuesday's Puglia train disaster that killed 23 people was "objectively linked to corruption", national anti-corruption czar Raffaele Cantone said Thursday. The commuter train head-on collision "was probably due to human error, but also stems from our country's atavistic problem of fielding inadequate infrastructure and one of the reasons for that is down to corruption," Cantone said.
    Meanwhile a team of Trani prosecutors probing what was Italy's worst rail disaster since 32 were killed in Viareggio in 2009 said last night they are investigating the Andria and Corato station masters on possible charges of culpable rail disaster and multiple manslaughter.
