Marian Moise, one of the fireworks installers that set up the fireworks display at the Colectiv nightclub, showed up at the Prosecutor General’s Office on Wednesday in order to be heard in the case concerning the nightclub fire that took place in October 2015.
Marian Moise was heard as a suspect in a case disjoined from the one in which the nightclub’s three owners – Alin George Anastasescu, Paul Gancea and Costin Mincu – were indicted, Agerpres informs.
Moise was inside the nightclub when the fire started and suffered serious burns, being later hospitalised in Belgium.
Prosecutors established that the fireworks display was set up inside the nightclub by Viorel Zaharia and Marian Moise, two professional fireworks installers working for Golden Ideas Fireworks Artists SRL.
According to prosecutors, the two fireworks installers failed to take all fire protection measures, despite having the special training and certifications required, thus showing “grave negligence.” They did not limit and secure the fireworks display’s perimeter and they did not make sure that fire extinguishers were nearby. The presence of fire extinguishers could have prevented the fire from spreading.
