Bertolaso faces manslaughter charge over earthquake damage

Former civil protection head's L'Aquila trial starts Nov 20

L'Aquila, October 29 - The former head of Italy's Civil Protection agency Guido Bertolaso will go on trial for manslaughter on November 20 in connection with the 2009 earthquake in L'Aquila which killed 309 people. The trial runs parallel to another court case in which six scientists and one former government official were sentenced to six years in prison in 2012 for reassuring residents of the town on the night before the earthquake. They had the verdict overturned on appeal in 2014.
