After a bus driver should have fired a school bus, is a political motive more and more unlikely. In the criticism of the bus company - because the Accused was previously convicted.
After the fire, a school bus was in Italy, in which all the 51 children were rescued, to run the investigation. Is also involved Italy's police special unit for combating terrorism. The reason, the competent Carabinieri commander Luca de Marchis, the statements of the accused Ousseynou S. immediately after his arrest. "He has been asked why he did it, why he has brought the lives of these children in danger," said Marchis, "because he said that he had done for the dead in the Mediterranean sea for Africa."
A statement that a political motive for his Brandtat close. According to the previous findings of the investigators, but the bus driver was with Senegalese roots politically never active, he was not a practicing Muslim.bus company knew nothing of a criminal record
However, the 46-Year-old of 2002, the Italian citizenship was, on several occasions by breaches of the law. Eleven years ago, he was caught drunk at the wheel of his private car. It was withdrawn, then the temporary driver's license. Two years ago, he molested a Minor sexually and was sentenced to 2018, to one year imprisonment on probation.
in view of these incidents, the bus company is now the critical questions: Why has a school bus driver, the drunk driving and Underage sexually striking. The managers of the company explain this by saying that Ousseynou S. had already been in front of these incidents been set.
First of all, he had been as a cleaning man has and then the bus driver stepped up. At that time, the company has requested a certificate of good conduct, that was at the time still clean. The alcohol drive and also the sexual harassment would have occurred later. However, the "Corriere della Sera" reported, citing initial investigation results, Ousseynou S. I also have problems currently heavy alcohol.daughters are reported in the Mediterranean sea
drowned A student who was yesterday in the Bus, the driver had justified his act with his supposed family history. As a Ousseynou S. ausgoss the petrol in the Bus, he tells of his in Mediterranean deaths children:
"He said you all have to die, because my three daughters have died. He said you died in the sea, and the will you go now, just the burns."
Still, it is not clear whether the story is true with the died daughters. The fact is, Ousseynou S. has two sons with his Italian wife, from whom he lives separately. The two sons at the age of 12 and 18 years, are doing well. Information on possible daughters, who have lived in Africa and Europe wanted to escape.

Whether the Brandtat of the bus driver's political motives, is also unclear. According to media reports, Ousseyynou S. said in the interviews, a trigger for what he did, the reports on the refugees were in a ship "Mare Jonio", the beginning of the week, first of all, the entrance to an Italian port. The investigators point out that the bus driver had planned his deed for at least three days, so already before the fall of the rescue ship.
The investigators are currently checking the possible psychological problems of the bus driver. Against a political fact, the only private-proliferation talks, a self-recorded Video before the fact. Therein, Ousseynou S. appealed to the African countries to stop Emigration to Europe. However, he posted this Video to the previous findings to the public - as in the case of political offenders is obvious - but sent it only to personal Acquaintances. Therein, Ousseynou S. should have also said the sentence: "soon you will all hear from me."
