Thorco Lineage captain sentenced
The captain onboard the Danish driven freight ship Thorco Lineage, which went aground in French Polynesia earlier this year in June after experiencing engine fail, has been given a one year suspended sentence for failure of informing local authorities about the engine fail and that the ship subsequently went aground.
The captain, who’s name is not known to the public, explained through his lawyer that he chose to only inform the shipping company about the situation, because he believed that the situation was under control.
