MOSCOW, August 8 (Itar-Tass) - A criminal case was opened in Moscow over the incident in which more than 100 Turkish construction workers at the Moskva City international business centre suffered food poisoning.
On July 7, 110 construction workers, mainly nationals of Turkey and Central Asia, were taken to hospital with an “acute intestinal infection” diagnosis. Two of them were in a grave condition.
Checks have shown that the outbreak of infectious disease resulted from major violations of sanitary-epidemiological regulations by the employer as well as the supplier of foodstuffs - Imperia Catering OJSC. The activity of the supplier was suspended on July 7.
Sources from the Russian General Prosecutor’s Office reported on Thursday that the Presnya district prosecutor’s office of Moscow together with Rospotrebnadzor consumer rights watchdog had made checks into the mass poisoning of workers from the Moscow office of Ant Yapi Sanayi Ve Ticaret Limited Sirketi, a Turkish construction company.
A case of administrative offence has been opened against the Moscow office of the Turkish company over the violation of sanitary-epidemiological requirements in catering, and preventing Rospotrebnadzor specialists from getting to facilities for checks, as a result of which they had to engage police.
On Thursday, criminal proceedings were launched against workers of the Turkish company’s Moscow office under Part 1 of Article 236 of the Criminal Code (violation of sanitary-epidemiological regulations inflicting diseases on a mass scale through negligence).
