RE: Structural engineer arrested in Bangladesh

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Just a different way of looking at things.

Here, this would be a civil matter unless the engineer were "criminally 
negligent," which holds a much higher threshold of proof.

The notion that if you make a legitimate mistake, you go to jail, is 
considered bizarre in the U.S.

If the guy was colluding with a constructor, for instance, that would be 
different. But the burden of proving that would be on the state.

He should have put his concerns in writing as well as reported it to the 
concerned authority. We now have more than 500 deaths and many are still 
unaccounted for.
