A long-anticipated 126-page expert report, commissioned by the public prosecutor, clearly states the Soma mining catastrophe (see our May Newsletter) was preventable. While eight high-level managers of the mine’s operating company have already been arrested in connection with the tragedy, the report points the finger of blame at almost everyone involved in the mine, including ministry bureaucrats, with the exception of the miners themselves. ‘The only innocent group is the workers,’ says the report.
