The regional court in Duisburg, West Germany, filed a case on Monday about the tragedy that occurred at the Loveparade Techno Music Festival in 2010, in which 21 people died, including two Spaniards.
What had been one of the most complex legal proceedings in Germany since the end of the Second World War ended after two and a half years and after 184 views without judgment.
The judges had planned to present their conclusions after announcing the decision to close the case. No appeal can be brought against this court decision, although the victims’ next of kin have refused to release them.
On July 24, 2010, an avalanche occurred in the only access and exit tunnel to the festival site, in which 21 people from six different countries between the ages of 17 and 38 died. More than 650 people were injured. Almost twice as many people attended the event, around 250,000 people.
