Livorno, May 3 - Italy's newly-appointed
environment minister Andrea Orlando on Friday called for the
Costa Concordia cruise ship to be removed by the end of 2013
from the coast off the Giglio island, where it has been stranded
on its side since it slammed into a rock formation last year.
"The Costa Concordia ship should not be on Giglio Island's
horizon next year", Orlando said following a technical meeting
held with local authorities to discuss the removal of the
gigantic vessel.
The Costa Concordia carrying 3,200 passengers hit a rock
off the small Giglio island on the Tuscan coast in January 2012,
and slowly flipped on its side as a large gash in its hull
sucked water into the ship.
An ongoing criminal investigation is seeking to determine
responsibilities in the disaster, which resulted in 32 dead.
The luxury ship is so big it can be clearly identified in
satellite pictures.
Orlando was sworn in last Sunday as part of the new
government headed by Premier Enrico Letta.
