The four detainees were sentenced to temporary detention with the consent of the prosecutor-investigator.
The owner and her co-manager – daughter, the doctor who was also the head of the nursing home and the psychiatrist were taken to prison. The two nurses and the administrative employee were released until the trial of the case.
The decision was made after a marathon process as the apologies of the seven defendants started in succession from 7.00 on Saturday morning and ended at 1.00 after midnight on Sunday. This was followed by the conference of the prosecutor and the investigator, which ended at 5.00 in the early hours of Sunday when their decisions for the accused were announced.
All of them face common criminal charges such as: Formation and membership in a criminal organization and for intentional homicides, with possible deceit and by serial omission and attempted, for a total of thirty deaths of elderly people from 2009 to 2021 as well as attempts.
