Albox directors jailed

Six directors of an Albox building company have been found guilty and jailed for repeated breaches of health and safety, despite no work accidents having occurred.

Penal Court 2 of Almeria ruled the company forced workers to work under unsafe work conditions and ignored complaints. The case started in 2008 when a work inspector visited the works and found a large number of violations.

He stated in his report that he considered the reasons for the breaches were “simply cost cutting”. He also added that a number of workers fled upon his arrival as they were working illegally at the site.
