(en) Italy, UCADI #164: MURDER UNPUNISHED: LUANA MURDERED IN PRATO (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 16 Nov 2022 08:30:33 +0200

It costs nothing to cause the death of a worker. This is demonstrated by the sentence on Luana D 'Orazio, the 22-year-old worker, killed by a machine in a factory in Prato, while she was working on a warper whose safety grids had been removed to make her go faster. ---- The murder - because that's what it is - took place on May 3, 2021 in Montemurlo (Prato) by means of a warper, in the company where she worked. The death occurred due to crushing of the chest (thoraco-pulmonary fracture polytrauma): a horrible and painful death. This is caused by the absence of the protection grid; keeping it lowered would have caused a slowdown in production, but protected the lives of those involved. The owner had given instructions to block the safety gate to increase production! The appraisals have ascertained the facts, verifying that a thick spider web on the sliding gear of the gate shows that the protection grid had been constantly inactive for some time.
The owners of the company chose the shortened procedure and the trial that took place ruled that having implemented a violation of the most elementary safety rules cost the owner of the factory two years in prison and a fine of 10 thousand euros and a year and six months to her husband, (both with the benefit of the conditional), for not having respected the accident prevention regulations, creating the conditions for the warper to swallow and crush Luana. The prosecutor, as the Code of Criminal Procedure allows, accepted the defendants' proposal to impose the obligatory plea bargaining on the parties.
The bosses like to say that sentences are not judged on the basis of the indignation they produce. The sentence of the Court of Prato is not only indignant, but it is unjust because the law that allows the deaths at work to be considered victims of accidents and not of homicide is unjust.
But security costs money and the bosses invent that the life of a worker / worker can end by "fatality", because the life of those who work is worth much less than lost earnings.
Unscrupulous entrepreneurs, parties and business organizations that opposed the creation of a national prosecutor on accidents at work, as proposed by the former prosecutor Raffaele Guariniello of Turin, had proposed to build the murder of Luana and who have opposed the tightening penalties for those who violate safety regulations, who do not hire inspectors to supervise the application of safety regulations.
Avoiding deaths at work should respond to a consciously disregarded collective interest to promote profit and guarantee impunity for those who take advantage of the need to work of so many women and men. The ultimate result of all this is a
an obligatory plea bargain that cries out for revenge and that without the consent of the politicians, the assent would never have become a law and therefore a sentence. Today everyone knows how little the life of a worker who died at work is worth, when the life of the three dead is worth
day at work. If the penalty is to be a deterrent, the Prato sentence instead becomes an endorsement of criminal behavior that will continue unpunished.
The day will come when you pay dearly and pay for everything!
