grenfell disaster could be corporate manslaughter

Post by Admin on Fri Jul 28, 2017 9:56 am

According to the Metropolitan Police, the Grenfell Tower disaster could be “corporate manslaughter”. Police say they have “reasonable grounds” for believing the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) and the council’s Tenant Management Organisation (TMO) committed the offence.
To prosecute both organisations, the police would have to prove gross negligence and a lack of duty of care towards those who died on 14 June. At least 80 people died in the blaze. But we reportedly won’t know the final death toll before the end of 2017. Corporate manslaughter? wrote:

Almost exactly a month ago, the SKWAWKBOX published a list of questions by a highly-qualified consulting engineer that demand answers if the real truth about the Grenfell Tower tragedy is to be known – and if those responsible are to be brought to account.
Those questions are today more relevant than ever, with the announcement by the Metropolitan Police that there are ‘reasonable grounds’ to suspect that the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council (RBKC) and the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (KCTMO) committed corporate manslaughter. wrote:
