Grosseto, February 25 - Italian prosecutors on Monday
requested the indictment of Francesco Schettino, the captain of
the Costa Concordia cruise ship that capsized killing 32
people off a Tuscan island in January 2012.
Schettino, dubbed 'captain coward' in the press, faces
possible charges of multiple manslaughter and abandoning ship.
Prosecutors also requested the indictment of five others
including the two deck officers, the helmsman, and Costa
Crociere cruise line Marine Operations Director Roberto
Ferrarini.
The Concordia went down on January 13, 2012 in Italy's worst
maritime disaster since World War II.
Schettino is suing Costa Crociere company for alleged unfair
dismissal and writing a book aimed at explaining how he
allegedly averted an even greater disaster.
Schettino has apologised for being "distracted" when his
ship capsized on January 13 after hitting a rock while sailing
close to Giglio Island to 'salute' local residents, stressing he
was not at the command of the ship.
He recently told reporters he would "gladly return to the
helm" of another cruise liner as commander.
