The Day The Dancing Stops (Ozone Disco Tragedy)

After 18 years, the Ozone Disco is again in headlines. The Sandiganbayan 5th Division just convicted seven former officials of the Quezon City engineer's office and two private individuals  of graft in connection with the deadly fire at the Ozone Disco Club on March 19, 1996,
