What a load of rubbish, Kim Schmitz (or Dotcom) has not even stood trial yet, let alone been sentenced to 50 years...some people will believe anything.
^^ It's as accurate as the spelling!
I think it was mentioned on the news that he could receive up to 50 years. It was probably Fox News.

this is the 1st monument to the Auchengeich minning disaster which killed 47 miners in a town where i live called chryston.
My grandfather was a miner there and was part of the 1st rescue team to be sent down but couldnt get to anyone.
this is the report of what happend
basicly the fan belt that supplied air to the shaft caught fire and filled the mine with smoke. the fire also trapped miners that were in the cart on thair way down to start a shift. later the coal board orderd the mine to be flooded which upset alot of people.
A few years a ago. we commisiond another statue to commemerate 50 years of the accident. a bronze miner unveild by scottish minister alec salmond.
this statue was later stolen by god knows who and never recoverd.
another one stands in its place.
thanks for reading.
