Grosseto, May 17 - Five board members of Costa
Crociere have been placed under investigation as part of a new
probe related to the January 2012 cruise ship accident that led
to the deaths of 32 people, according to sources close to the
matter.
The executives are reportedly being probed for possible
collusion in the crimes of dereliction of duty and manslaughter
that the ship's Captain, Francesco Schettino, and other crew
members are being accused of.
Top executives from parent company Carnival also sit on
Costa Crociere's board.
The new investigation is a separate from the one involving
Schettino, which led to a preliminary hearing this week.
The second probe has been opened after a group of lawyers
representing some of the passengers aboard the Costa Concordia
on its fateful journey, grouped together in the "Justice for
Concordia" association, reported the company's management to
authorities in April for their possible involvement in the
accident.
Prosecutors are only investigating executives that were
sitting on the board at the time of the tragedy, on January 13
2012, sources said.
"It's an obligatory move," the Grosseto prosecutors said
when asked about the new investigation, without commenting
further.
