Six years after five people died in suspicious conditions in Comarnic after drinking alcohol in a pub, the punishment for the one who sold them poison as brandy comes, he remarks.
Four men and a woman died a few days apart. They all lived in Comarnic and used to drink alcohol at a certain pub. The events took place in 2015, and the innkeeper who gave the customers to drink methyl alcohol instead of brandy was now sentenced to three years and four months with execution.
Prosecutors said during the long trial that the seller knew that the drink sold was counterfeit from methyl alcohol, a deadly substance for humans if consumed in large quantities.
Methyl alcohol or methanol is used in industry as a gasoline additive, fuel, solvent for varnishes, paints, paint strippers and adhesives, diluents, are contained in antifreeze, deicing liquid or windshield wiper fluid, as well as in printing solutions.
That gave the innkeeper a drink for his customers, five of whom died of severe stomach pains. Prosecutors managed to prove the deaths of only two of the victims, for the others there was not enough evidence to prove the connection with the innkeeper. This also happened because the family of two of the victims, father and son, buried the bodies without an autopsy.
Throughout the trial, the suspect claimed that he did not know what he was giving the people to drink, the prosecutors always claiming that the man knew what he was selling. The judges sentenced Ion Bârlică to three years and four months in prison, forced him to pay 8,000 euros for the families of the deceased and forbade him to ever sell alcoholic beverages again.
The innkeeper will have to pay 8,000 euros in compensation to the families of the deceased. The court also ruled that he would never be able to sell alcoholic beverages again. In addition to aggravated murder, Ion Bârlică was also convicted of counterfeiting or substituting food or products. The decision is not final.
