special commission of the Moscow City government on Thursday will name the cause of the Basmanny market dome collapse
A special commission of the Moscow City government on Thursday will name the cause of the Basmanny market dome collapse. "Specialists should give a final answer not later than March 30," City Hall officials told Itar-Tass. The commission which includes representative of Moscow's construction sector, technologists and architects, began the probe several days after the incident. "Many expert examinations were carried out during a month, including independent ones, which allowed for making a complete and comprehensive analysis of the incident," the city administration said. Earlier, commission member, special projects manager of Moscow's construction complex Alexei Vvedensky noted that according to preliminary information, "insufficient maintenance of the building" had caused the dome collapse. He reminded that initially, the commission was to have announced the cause on March 23, but then decided to work until the deadline. As a result of the collapse of the dome of the Basmanny market, 66 people died. Aside from the Moscow government commission, specialists from the city prosecutor's office are conducting their own investigation. City prosecutor Anatoly Zuyev named three possible versions of the tragedy: violation of the operating instructions, improper compliance with the safety rules by the market administration and incorrect designing. Prosecutors instituted criminal proceedings over the market dome collapse under Criminal Code Article 109 /death through negligence/ and Article 293 /negligence/. Meanwhile, the Moscow City Court on Wednesday upheld the decision by the Zamoskvoretsky court, which had refused to sanction the arrest of Basmanny market director Mark Mishiyev. Mishiyev is on recognizance not to leave the city. He was detained on February 24 and charged with "causing the death of two or more persons through negligence, because of improper performance of his service duties." The Zamoskvoretsky court issued an arrest warrant for Mishin on February 26, but the Moscow City Court later annulled it. On March 7, the Zamoskvoretsky court refused to meet the prosecutors' petition to take Mishiyev into custody.
