Firefighters Antonina Radu and George Petrică Matei risk maximum prison sentences, of 15 years each, if they are found guilty in the Colectiv fire case.

Anti-corruption prosecutors argue that the two employees of the Bucharest Inspectorate for Emergency Situations were aware that the Colectiv nightclub was functioning without having the fire prevention permits and that they ignored this aspect.

The maximum prison sentence for this is 15 years.

DNA has also asked judges to compel the defendants to pay the costs of the rescuers’ operation on the night of the tragedy. The two firemen are also forced to pay the moral compensations required by the victims’ families. The seizure of RON 62,000, meaning the profit obtained by the Colectiv club, was also asked.

The prosecutors have asked for the maximum prison sentences against the former District 4 mayor, Cristian Popescu Piedone and against other former employees of the district municipality in the Colectiv case, where the former public servants face charges of abuse of office and complicity to abuse of office.

64 people died and over 100 were injured in a tragic fire burst in the Colectiv nightclub during a rock concert on the night of October 30, 2015.
