Pretty much nothing if someone gets a bee in their bonnet. That's why every cam and harness comes with pages of warnings and instructions, to try to mitigate the risk of being sued/charged.

The crucial point here is that a 12-year-old kid is dead, possibly because someone miss-assembled some crucial life-safety equipment. Tito was a very good climber but he wasn't an adult, not even close to being one.
Consider if a 12-year-old bought a bike and rode it out of the shop and got killed by a truck at the first cross-road because the front-wheel fell off.
If it was in Australia I would expect that the coroner would want to call evidence from the manufacturer and retailer and any supervisory adults who were present. It's possible that could lead to the coroner recommending charges.
