The prosecutor had proposed that all seven sit on the bench for 35 cases of elderly food, with the charges in each case of directing, forming, participating and joining a criminal organization and manslaughter with intent and especially with possible intent, in a calm state of mind, completed by acts and omissions in series, committed and attempted, by complicity in the context of an established criminal organization.
They are a mother and daughter, owners of the structure, a general practitioner and a psychiatrist (all four are in prison as undertrials) and three more workers, who had been released on parole, namely one worker, a relative of the owners, who had secretarial support duties in the structure and sometimes also performed nursing tasks and two other people belonging to the nursing staff.
Six on the bench for 32 elderly cases
The competent Chania Judicial Council overwhelmingly approves the prosecutor’s proposal, but acquits one of the defendants and in this case the relative of the owner of the nursing home.
The six are charged with 32 cases involving the elderly, with some variation, and acquitted of six cases, two murders and two attempted murders.
Based on the referral will initially, the members of the criminal organization were five, i.e. the period from 2009 to 2015, and along the way, at the beginning of 2016, the accused psychiatrist was added.
Among other things, it is stated in the will that “they failed to provide the appropriate food, qualitatively and quantitatively, to the elderly guests given that the provision of food to them on a daily basis was minimal to non-existent, the quality was particularly low, while the provision was made quickly in a minimum of time in view of that the provision of meat was particularly rare with pulses or pasta being given more often, the food portions very small and especially the amount of ground food provided to the non-self-catering guests was minimal e.g. a cup of coffee with two or three spoons.
From dairies, diluted milk was offered, while the inmates were offered unsuitable and health-threatening foods, e.g. animal viscera which provided them free of charge to the unit.
According to “Tunel” information, the lawyer of the owners will challenge the relevant will.
