All I've been able to find conflicts. This
article calls it Italy's top disaster relief organization.
But the top disaster relief organization for the US is the American Red Cross, which isn't led by the state.
So that doesn't actually give me any room to say.
Furthermore, the articles keep saying seven were convicted--six scientists and one (ex)government official. But all seven were members of the National Commission.
So, what? Was there only one person there capable of acting in any official capacity? Why are all of them being held liable then--it's obviously isn't their job if they aren't given a position of authority.
And I'm seeing quotes that "These are professionals who spoke in good faith and were by no means motivated by personal interests." Is that just trying to reinforce their defense, or were they actually just experts called in to discuss the situation, without a personal stake in the issue?
I have no clue. I'm not seeing anything close to definitive proof for either argument.
And my point is that you're a biased moron for jumping to that conclusion.
