In the Rostov region, the court passed a sentence on an employee of the structural unit of JSC Wagon Repair Company-1, who was found guilty of violating labor protection requirements that negligently caused the death of a person. This was reported by the press service of the Southern Transport Prosecutor’s Office.

It was established that the person involved, being responsible for compliance with labor protection requirements, did not fulfill the duties assigned to him. He was absent from the assembly shop during shunting operations with a locomotive, when a crane operator was mortally injured while intoxicated at his workplace.

The court sentenced the guilty person to imprisonment for a term of 1 year suspended with a probationary period of 6 months. Until the verdict comes into force.
