No prose­cu­tion over Christchurch build­ing col­lapse: NZ police

The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - World -

NEW Zealand police said Thurs­day that they will not pur­sue a crim­i­nal prose­cu­tion in re­la­tion to the col­lapse of a build­ing in Christchurch that claimed the lives of 115 peo­ple, in­clud­ing 28 Ja­panese stu­dents, dur­ing an earth­quake in 2011.

De­tec­tive Su­per­in­ten­dent Peter Read said in a state­ment that af­ter a “com­plex, tech­ni­cal in­ves­ti­ga­tion” into the col­lapse of the six-story Can­ter­bury Tele­vi­sion Build­ing, the police con­cluded there was not enough ev­i­dence to pro­vide a rea­son­able prospect of con­vic­tion in court.
