Capitanich urges justices to 'indentify those responsible' for the Once train accident

Rescue teams and police agents are pictured while working at the scene of the accident in the Buenos Aires City train station of Once.

Ahead of a new anniversary of the so called "Once tragedy" that left 51 people and hundreds injured in 2012, exposing the deficit of Argentina’s train system, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich called justices to “identify” those responsible for the accident along with their “civil or criminal” liabilities.

“It is absolutely necessary to observe that there has never been such a level of investment for the improvement of train infraestructure,” the head of ministers said earlier today while addressing reporters at the government house, something, he added, follows the “mark in the administration of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner for the people to access public services of vey good quality.”

Capitanich considered the 2012 Once accident a “tragic event” that requires the “judicial investigation to identify the responsible and, among the responsible, the civil or criminal responsibilities.”

On Sunday, relatives and friends of the Once victims will be marking three years since the accident that marked a turning point in the government’s transport policy increasing investments in the sector to renew the train system.

A first demonstration has been called for 8.30 at the Once train station while a mass will be held in the Buenos Aires City Metropolitan Cathedral at 12.30 pm. At around 7 pm, there will be a rally at the Plaza de Mayo square also to honour the 51 people who lost their lives three years ago when a train collided against another one that remained stranded in the City's Once station.
