Labor suit over cruise ship captain begins in Genoa

Costa Crociere wants to dismiss Schettino for Giglio disaster

Labor suit over cruise ship captain begins in Genoa

Genoa, December 5 - A labour court hearing into the Costa Crociere cruise line's dismissal of the captain responsible for a deadly sinking almost one year ago began Wednesday. The court is deciding the legitimacy of how Italy's Costa Crociere dismissed Captain Francesco Schettino last July. The cruise company fired Schettino after the January 13 disaster, when his Concordia cruise ship capsized and sank off the island of Giglio leaving 32 dead. Schettino's lawyer argues the dismissal process used by the company was not legitimate. Schettino, who is facing a possible indictment for multiple manslaughter, was not in court. He has previously said that he expected an apology from all those who called him "captain coward" for abandoning ship.
