Ex-railway executives renamed as suspects in Spain crash

Text size Aa Aa

Eleven former executives from Spain’s state-owned railway administrator Adif have been recalled as official suspects over last summer’s train crash near Santiago de Compostela, that killed 79 people.

They had originally been named as suspects but that decision was overturned.

Now an investigating judge will question them over whether safety measures were adequate.

The driver, Francisco Jose Garzon, who admitted travelling at twice the 80kmh speed limit, already faces multiple homicide charges.
