Crime boss Bell found ‘Not guilty’ in Walled City fire hearing

Organised crime boss Louis Bell evaded justice once again when his company, LB Inc., was found ‘Not guilty’ in the multiple manslaughter case arising from last year’s apartment block fire in the Walled City. The case had been brought by Walled City Council after one of Bell’s buildings burned down, in 2021, with the loss of 17 residents’ lives. Fire investigators blamed faulty wiring for starting the fatal fire.

LB Inc – which many regard as a ‘front’ for Bell’s underworld activities – had denied liability.  

Bell wasn’t in court for the hearing, but his company issued a statement expressing regret that the incident had happened and offered sympathy to those who had been bereaved. QC Trevor Cameron, who was acting on behalf of the victims’ families, said Mr Bell’s condolences were “an empty gesture from a man who had no consideration for human life whatsoever”. He said the families were now considering pursuing a civil case against LB Inc.”
