Moerdijk verdict

Moerdijk verdict
21 December 2012 - Sanity restored

And the verdict in the Moerdijk disaster is in. Briefest of summaries: chemical packaging company burned down to the ground with 70 million euro's in property and environmental damages but not the employee that caused the fire but the managers were charged (deliberate arson no less) with the prosecutor demanding 2 to 4 years in jail.
Luckily some sanity was restored today. The judges did not buy it. Three members of senior management are now sentenced to 180 to 240 hours of community service (NOS News). The prosecutor will appeal the verdict.
