the Eternit trial report, Torino (Italy)
While waiting for the verdict, retired math and science teacher Giovanni Condolo, remembers a tour at the Ronzone plant where he was taking one of his classes from Ticineto on a school trip.
The story was posted on Facebook yesterday: ‘The managers welcomed us and took us round the facilities’.
Then they got annoyed when a girl asked them how many people who worked at Eternit ever reached retirement age. The teacher asked the girl why she was asking such a question and she said: ’My father told me to ask’. ‘And what does your father do?’ asked the teacher. He is a doctor she answered.
The managers were trained to answer the treacherous questions but how were they to deal with a young busybody. This is what the people of Casale can not forgive, even before being informed of the technical and legal motivations in the February the 13th verdict: the fact that the owners of Eternit and the top management knew that asbestos killed, but in spite of their knowledge, they continued to process it and spread it.
