Castellucci and other defendants compensate 193 civil parties

2 min read

Ten defendants in the trial for the collapse of the Morandi bridge, including the former CEO of Autostrade per l’Italia, Giovanni Castellucci, have decided to compensate 193 of the civil parties in the trial, who are thus formulating, against them, the revocation of the constitution .

In the group of former managers accused for the collapse of the viaduct who have taken the path of compensation, in addition to Castellucci, there are, among others, Paolo Berti (former director of central operations of Aspi), Michele Donferri Mitelli (former maintenance director) and Antonino Galatà, former CEO of Spea (the Aspi subsidiary that dealt with maintenance).

10-20% of the damages requested will be paid to the parties

The amount of compensation, for the moment, has not been made official, as it is the center of a confidentiality agreement between the parties. According to rumours, however, it would amount to a total sum of around 5 million euros. In essence, each of the recipients would receive an amount between 10 and 20% of the damages requested.

“In consideration of Aspi’s repeated refusal – write the defenders of the civil parties admitted to the trial – to recognize compensation for the damage suffered, 193 civil parties have reached an agreement for a partial settlement with a small group of defendants”.

The lawyers: “It is not an admission of guilt”

The lawyers also specify that “only in relation to these defendants” is “the revocation of the civil action” being formulated; and that “the settlement is in no way intended by the participants in it as an, even implicit, admission of guilt but only as an act of availability towards a significant number of individuals, families, small businesses and trade union associations”. The news emerged during the hearing of the trial relating to the collapse of the viaduct on the Polcevera, which occurred on 14 August 2018, causing 43 victims.
