They charged to eleven people for driving vehicles that pollute the environment
The prosecutor Carlos Matheu charged 10 Cordovan and a native woman in America for crimes against the environment, of which three are malicious penalties and the remaining eight culpable.
"Vehicles threw black smoke that polluted the atmosphere and put at risk people who were exposed to such pollution, which is dangerous to human health, causing lung and cardiovascular disease," he said Matheu told Cba24n.
The judicial official claimed the charges "a negligent act" and noted that some of those cars "have already gone through the Technical Vehicle Inspection (ITV) and were warned about high pollution, did not put the vehicle in a position and have continued to circulate so they were attributed a fraudulent actions. "
ITV is the Technical Inspection required by the Municipality of Cordoba to vehicles with more than two years old, control that should take place in private cars once a year to obtain authorization and be able to move.
The crime is attributed to the accused is 'environmental pollution' under the Act Hazardous Waste, and the 'culpable' offense penalty is three to 10 years imprisonment, and culpable way it is two years in prison.
Matheu had begun investigations in October last year, at which time he warned that these gases in certain hours of the morning "can not move up", whereby people should "involuntarily inhale these toxic".
"Diesel engines are increasing the amount of gas produced, because they generate particles with a diameter of 2.5 microns that the body can not slow down, and enters the bloodstream," he expanded the prosecutor.
