Justice, a long time coming

Justice at last for the families of the 31 killed , 2,500 injured and the 30,000 families who lost their homes in the Toulouse explosion of 2001. Serge Biechlin, Total Plant Manager was charged with manslaughter and will spend a year in jail with two years suspended and pay 45,000 euros fine. The company will pay a 225,000 euro fine, the maximum amount allowed. In Sept 2001 just as we signed for our house here we heard of the terrible Toulouse explosion and thought as everyone else it must be a terrorist attack. It was a couple of weeks  after the Sept 11 attacks in America.
