On April 25, the trial of the “Brétigny disaster” will begin. The SNCF, SNCF Réseau and an SNCF executive will appear before the Evry-Courcouronnes criminal court (Essonne) for involuntary manslaughter and involuntary injury. The State, which bears a crushing responsibility in this accident, does not seem to be among the accused.
This is a real clinical trial aimed at comparing the risk of contamination between 2 groups of people: an “experimental” group of 5000 people will attend the concert and a “control” group of 2500 people will not attend the concert. Objective: to resume a festive and cultural life in complete safety.
