The manager of the Mottarone cable car Luigi Nerini and the operating director Enrico Perocchio leave the prison of Verbania whose entrance had seen closing behind them at dawn last Tuesday, 48 hours after the cabin fell on the mountain that overlooking Lake Maggiore caused the death of 14 people. The head of service Gabriele Tadini goes under house arrest, who admitted to having tampered with the safety braking system. This was decided by the investigating judge Donatella Bonci Buonamici at the end of a day of interrogations. For Tadini, house arrest is sufficient, while for the other two suspects – brought up by the head of service – there is no serious evidence necessary for a precautionary measure. Read also The investigating judge has not validated the arrest for the three suspects accused of multiple manslaughter for the 14 victims of an accident triggered by the breaking of the towing cable (the causes of which are yet to be ascertained) which would not have resulted in the crash of cabin number 3 if the emergency brake system had not been voluntarily deactivated. If for Tadini the confessions weigh on the fork – made to the magistrates – for him house detention is enough, while Nerini and Perlocchio return home after the detention started at dawn on Wednesday. The evidence collected against them was not sufficiently serious for a precautionary measure. The judge’s decision comes at the end of a day of interrogations. If Tadini goes to house arrest, the cable car manager has not been held responsible for safety, according to the judge who accepted the defense of the lawyer Pasquale Pantano. “He knew about the problem with the brakes, but also about the two maintenance interventions, it is not he who can stop the cable car. By law, two legislative decrees explain it, the head of the plant and the operating manager must take care of safety “, that is Tadini and Perocchio, the words at the end of the defense hearing of the defender. If Tadini’s words go against Perocchio, the testimony of a maintenance technician external to the company ‘absolves’ him, so the investigating judge decided to postpone him home to his family.
