Rome, April 17 - A preliminary hearings judge has
admitted Costa Cruises as a civil plaintiff in criminal
proceedings regarding the shipwreck of its Concordia liner,
lawyers said Wednesday during a break between hearings on
Wednesday.
The judge also admitted all the shipwreck survivors and
other people who made requests, along with a number of Italian
ministries and local governments, including that of Giglio
Island.
Giglio, the Tuscan island off which the disaster took
place, has asked for 80 million euros in damages and the Italian
State has requested 37 million.
Prosecutors want the judge in the Tuscan city of Grosseto
to indict Captain Francesco Schettino and five others involved
in the January 2012 cruise-liner disaster that resulted in the
deaths of 32 people.
Schettino is suspected of multiple manslaughter and
abandonment of his post before the evacuation of all 4,200
passengers and crew.
In Italy, civil plaintiffs can join criminal proceedings as
damaged parties.
Costa's lawyers said the company suffered "huge damages" in
terms of a tarnished image and the loss of the ship.
