THE judge investigating the high-speed train crash on the Galician coast has named 22 rail infrastructure personnel as suspects.
Judge Luis Alaez has asked Adif officials, including the three most recent presidents, to come in for questioning as suspects between October 9 and December 11.
Board members and senior managers in charge of safety have also been called in for questioning.
A court statement said these officials, and possibly others from Adif, will be treated as suspects while the judge tried to determine whether the track was safe.
The driver of the train has already admitted to driving too fast when the crash occurred on July 24, and has been provisionally charged with multiple counts negligent homicides.
