He broke through the threshold of 100 thousand signatures there petition launched on the Change.org platform 3 weeks ago by Rossana Seccabiani, following the death of Umberto Garzarella and Greta Nedrotti, to ask for justice to be done for children by equating naturic homicide with that of the road: “like motorists, even yachtsmen at the helm of motorized units that, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, cause the death of a person must be punished with significantly greater penalties than those foreseen for manslaughter “, explains the text of the appeal online.
When they died, says the author of the campaign, the two boys “were on a boat in Salò, in the evening, like so many people on Lake Garda and in all the Italian lakes and seas. They were calm and enjoyed the summer evening and never would have thought that a motorboat could literally pass over them, killing Umberto instantly and throwing Greta into the water, causing her numerous fractures and causing her death by drowning “.
The text also recalls that “the two Germans at the wheel – Patrick Kassen and Christian Teismann – would not even have stopped to help him, but instead would have gone to have a beer immediately after the accident as if nothing had happened. Greta COULD HAVE BEEN SAVED, instead she was left to die ”.
For this reason, “we ask for justice for Greta and Umberto” writes Rossana on behalf of all the signatories: “we ask to equate the navigation rules with those foreseen for the road NOW and that these two people are BOTH arrested and clarity on happened “.
[Vogliamo] “To return to enjoy the summer evenings on the boat without the fear of being killed by individuals who, without any respect for the rules and life, drive powerful boats and launch them at full speed, caring about the consequences of their actions”, he concludes. “Because Umberto and Greta are all of us, all the people who love our lakes and our seas and now weep two young lives and a justice that cannot be seen.”
The promoter specifies that “we know that if the new law we are asking for with this petition is approved it will not be retroactive, even if we would like it to be; we would like both Patrick Kassen and Christian Teismann to be sentenced to the same punishment as for road murder and wrongful death. Almost surely this will not be possible and these two individuals will be judged according to the nautical laws in force at the time of the fact. But we want them to be at least condemned BOTH a serve the maximum sentence in prison, considering all aggravating circumstances, for the unclassifiable behavior that BOTH have had both before and after the accident, to have something that can be defined as justice for Umberto and Greta. “
