Concordia captain asks court for 'freedom' of movement


Grosseto, October 31 - The captain of the Costa Concordia cruise liner that ran aground in January presented a request to the Grosseto court assessing whether to indict him on criminal charges to allow him "complete freedom" of movement. Currently Francesco Schettino cannot leave his home town in Meta di Sorrento near Naples without authorization. Schettino's defense presented a petition asking the court to revoke the order. Presiding Judge Valeria Montesarchio refused the request, warning him not to leave Meta. Schettino's defense team said they would appeal the decision. The court is assessing whether to indict Schettino and a number of others on criminal charges related to the Costa Concordia cruise liner accident that killed 32. Schettino is under investigation for multiple manslaughter, abandoning his post before the evacuation of all 4,200 passengers and crew had been completed, and failing to communicate properly with maritime authorities. Schettino's second in command, Ciro Ambrosio, officer Salvatore Ursino and the head of the Costa Cruises fleet, Roberto Ferrarini, are also among a group under investigation.
