Gabriele Tadini, arrested as part of the investigation into the Mottarone tragedy, returns free. This was decided by the investigating judge of Verbania Elena Ceriotti, noting the “imminent expiry of the terms of pre-trial detention of the investigation phase, still in progress given the complexity of the ongoing expert operations” which will have to shed light on the causes of the accident in which the 23 last May 14 people lost their lives. The head of the Mottarone cable car service, assisted by the lawyer Marcello Perillo, was arrested on 29 May after confessing to having left the forks inserted that prevent the brakes from starting in case of emergency. A practice that explains why cabin number 3 crashed, but not why the rope broke that day. In addition to multiple manslaughter, Tadini is accused of failing to record the anomalies of the braking system in the appropriate register.
