Fourteen defendants in waste trafficking trial acquitted

(ANSA) – Viterbo, October 12 - All 14 defendants being tried in an illegal waste trafficking case discovered in 2005 in central Italy near the city of Viterbo were acquitted on Friday after the statute of limitations expired. The outcome was announced this morning by a Viterbo court. Prosecutors had asked for a 36-year jail sentence to be applied to the defendants as part of their case summations. The trial resulted from an investigation looking into the alleged transfer of rubbish from northern Italy into caves in near Viterbo.
