Justice in pandemic mode – Real estate abuses could be judged at Palexpo

A mega-trial of two promoters will take place this fall: with the Covid, the largest room of the Courthouse is not large enough to accommodate it.

The mega-trial could be held at Palexpo, a first for the Geneva courts!

An extraordinary trial will take place this fall in Geneva: 188 cheated people, who have lost a total of more than 27 million francs, will have their eyes riveted on the Criminal Court to attend the judgment of two promoters and three representatives of a general contractor which have hit the headlines since 2013. Unfinished villas, interrupted construction sites, poor workmanship: the five defendants will have to explain their debacle which made their victims live a nightmare. “We thought that these cases did not arrive in Switzerland.”

From a good source, the “Tribune de Genève” has learned that the courthouse should not be the scene of this much awaited and planned trial during the first three weeks of October. It could be held at Palexpo. A first for Geneva justice!
