the Eternit trial report, Torino (Italy)
On June 28 2012, the Turin Public Prosecutor who pioneered this case – Raffaele Guariniello – announced that he
had appealed the judgment. Considering the crimes committed, 16 years in jail was an insufficient punishment. Guariniello is calling for the sentences to be increased to 20 years for both defendants. The public prosecutor’s office, he added, is now investigating the deaths of 117 Italians who worked in the Swiss and German Eternit plants and as well as the asbestos deaths of Italians in Brazil and France who were exposed to Eternit asbestos.
