Appeals Court Finds Captain & Ship's Officer of 'Sea Diamond' Guilty

sea-diamondA Piraeus Appeals Court on Friday issued its ruling for the case of the cruise ship ‘Sea Diamond,’ which sank near the island of Santorini, Greece in 2007.
The court ruled that the ship had been seaworthy and found the ships’s captain and one of the ship’s officers guilty for its sinking due to negligence, while the operations director of the managing company was found guilty of negligence for causing pollution and given a suspended sentence.
The court acquitted the technical director, DPA and two legal representatives of the managing companies, as well as the inspector of the Norwegian shipping register.
The captain was sentenced to five years imprisonment, with the option of buying this time off at a rate of five euros per day, while the operations manager was given a suspended sentence of three years and the ship’s officer a suspended sentence of 26 months.
