'Serious indications' of cruise ship captain's guilt: judge


The judge who released the captain of the Italian Costa Concordia liner into house arrest said on Wednesday there was mounting evidence against the officer's claims that he had tried to rejoin the stricken vessel.

The fact that other crew and officers stayed on board to try to evacuate the passengers refuted the captain's claim that he could not oversee the operation from the vessel, said Judge Valeria Montesarchio, media reported.
