According to Reuters, the owners of the Bucharest Club, in Romania, Costin Mincu, Alin George Anastasescu and Paul Gancea, were arrested on manslaughter charges, due to the tragic fire that took place at Goodbye To Gravity’s recent show. The charges came as a result of them not following proper safety standards. The death toll from that incident has now increased to 32, with nearly 200 others injured.
According to Blabbermouth, prosecutors said the following:
“Data and evidence … have shown the fire occurred because the people managing the respective space encouraged and allowed a number of people above the club’s limit in a space that was not endowed with more emergency exits.”
They added that the owners permitted “a fireworks show in the indoor venue that was improper as it contained easily flammable materials illegally installed to avoid additional costs.”
