Radiohead have shared a new statement following a recent hearing investigating Domenic Cugliari, the engineer who had been responsible for the design of the stage at Toronto's Downsview Park that collapsed in June of 2012, killing drum technician Scott Johnson. During the hearing, conducted by the Discipline Committee of the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario, Radiohead write that Cugliari "has acknowledged...his catalogue of errors and the negligence on his part that led to the stage collapse and Scott’s death."
"These admissions are 8 years too late," they continue. "If the evidence now accepted by Mr Cugliari had been agreed at the original court case brought against him, @livenation and the contractor Optex Staging, it would have been complete in one day, with a very different outcome and some justice would have been delivered. As it is, Mr Cugliari has now retired and, is seemingly beyond any legal recrimination."
