The bail of 15,000 euros that climbers have to post corresponds to the average cost of rescuing and burying the victim. In a press release published on Wednesday, the mayor complained that it was “unacceptable for the French taxpayer to bear these costs”.
The mayor stated that on July 30, four Romanian tourists in shorts headed to the summit. Then the rescue units on board the helicopter asked to return.
On July 3, 11 people died when a glacier broke through at the Marmolada in Trentino. Last week, the mayor of Kanazei municipality ordered the extension of the so-called red zone, which is no longer accessible. The reason for this is the possibility of instability in the niche of the rocks and the widening of many cracks, the statement said.
