Doesn't look equitable to me. To allow plea bargaining for some of the accused and not others cannot be right. Jailing the helmsman also seems a bizarre reaction.

It ain't over yet!
Understatement! This could run for years through the Italian appeals process.

As ever in these cases scapegoats are required and whether the legal wrangling goes on for years or not, it appears the Italian authorities and the company have 'delivered'. Personally I feel the master was a foot short of a fathom taking the ship so close-in to shore in the first place.

The helmsman, and others, entered a guilty plea - under most judicial systems some form of punishment follows and in his case it was automatically suspended and will never be served.

Schettino entered a not guilty plea which means that it had to go to trial.

Thanks for the clarification...... Can't help thinking that the fairness of it all has got lost in the application of the Italian justice system.

By today's standards, he'll be out for good behaviour soon, anyway. His career has come to an end, for which many serving officers will be thankful, I'm sure.
Lol , probably the helmsman.

I am not so sure. His Master License is suspended only for five years and forever as public official. That means he can be more dangerous as town councilman than as Master

The remains of Russel Rebelo will be repatriated to his home in India this week in the custody of his brother Kevin.

With all the media publicity given to Captain Schettino's light sentence, the sentences given to other crew members and on-shore Costa staff seem to have been overlooked.

The extract below is taken from today's 'The Marine Proffesional' published electronically by IMarEST.

Francesco Schettino, who captained the ill-fated cruiseship Costa Concordia that sank in 2012, has been found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to 16 years in prison. Although prosecutors sought a 26 year and three month jail term, Schettino ultimately received 10 years for multiple manslaughter, five for causing the shipwreck and another year for abandoning his passengers.

The Italian national was not present in court when judge Giovanni Puliatti read out the verdict. He is expected to appeal the verdict and has argued that he is being scapegoated. Earlier in the trial, Schettino is reported to have made a statement to the judge saying: "All the responsibility has been loaded on to me with no respect for the truth or for the memory of the victims." he further claimed to have spent the past three years "in a media meat grinder".

His legal team put forward the case that the incident was due to a collective failure on the part of the vessel's crew and that others should be apportioned part of the blame. Although other individuals linked to the incident were arrested and have been sentenced, Schettino's is the most severe sentence.

Cabin service director Manrico Giampedroni received a sentence of two and a half years for his actions during the chaotic evacuation process, while first officer Ciro Ambrosio, helmsman Jacob Rusli Bin and third officer Silvia Coronica each receive close to two years for their actions. It is noteworthy that Costa Cruises fleet crisis co-ordinator Roberto Ferrarini, who was on shore at the time of the incident, was sentenced to two years 10 months for delaying an adequate response to the disaster by downplaying the extent of the damage.

This is probably something that was inevitable, but someone doing some "urban exploration" (and more than a bit of illegal trespassing) snuck their way onboard the wreck ..

A Familiar Visitor to Giglio Harbor?

I grabbed this screenshot from Giglio's webcam (4/22/2015). It appears one of the crane barges that was present early in the salvage efforts has returned.
I'm presuming it's there to remove parts or all of the underwater platforms. Does anybody here know for sure?

(The crane is mentioned at Giglio news homepage but just with the same speculations of the purpose?)
There is also posted an informative leaflet from Crowley
