(ANSA) - Grosseto, September 11 - The expert panel's report
on the cruise ship wreck that took 32 lives last January was
delivered Tuesday to investigating magistrate Valeria
Montesarchio.
It's expected that the 1,000-page report, which includes
seven DVDs, will be copied for other parties involved in the
next hearing in the investigation into the wreck, which is
slated to begin on Oct. 15.
Captain Francesco Schettino is being investigated on
charges of manslaughter, abandoning ship, and failing to
communicate with maritime authorities in the crash.
The expert panel, led by Admiral Giuseppe Cavodragone, has
been looking into elements of what caused the cruise ship
carrying 4,229 people to crash on the island of Giglio on Jan.
13, killing 32, including a five-year-old girl.
It's believed the cruise liner hit a rock while sailing
close to Giglio off the Tuscan coast to 'salute' local
residents.
The experts responded to 50 points raised by the
investigating judge, including everything from the ship's route
to nautical charts, the design of the ship, and its movements
before and after the crash.
The experts have also listened to recordings of
conversations on bridge of the Concordia the night of the crash.
Meanwhile, preliminary work is underway to remove the
Concordia cruise liner from Giglio island.
Workers are attempting to anchor the wreck with cables so
that it can be carefully turned upright and then re-floated away
from the island.
The salvage companies that will re-float the Concordia and
tug it away have said they expect the island should be free of
the wreck by next spring.
