AROUND 30 people who were affected by an explosion at last year’s Velez-Malaga feria intend to launch a criminal suit against the owner of a bar.
The explosion, which injured around 90 people, occurred in the kitchen of the establishment.
A scientific report was compiled by police and a Court of First Instance determined that the explosion was the result of minor negligence, but was not intentional.
The group, represented by Marta Romero, believe the incident was instead the result of gross negligence, and that the bar’s owner should be criminally prosecuted.
Ms Romero said she believes the police’s scientific report showed that the bar had an industrial kitchen without the proper licences.
