Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
no need to hypothesise criminality in order to explain what happened.

True, the need is to discourage continuation of the behavior and to force a cleanup of the systemic problems. The need to go after criminality "at the margins" is to demonstrate that, if your incompetence and cronyism weak sufficient damage on the entire society you are vulnerable to a thorough investigation and to prosecution for ANYTHING that turns up. If there are no consequences for the perpetrators, there will be no change.
