Crewmembers of Sewol Deny Charges on Murder at the Trial Yesterday

 

At the first trial hearing held in Gwangju District Court of the 15 crewmembers of the sunken ferry, Sewol who have been brought to the court on charges of willful negligence and homicide, defendants reportedly denied some charges on willful manslaughter.

Captain of the ferry, Lee Joon-seok and three key sailors, are currently accused of homicide due to willful negligence, with the eleven others indicted on breaking maritime law for overloading the ship.

The prosecution is predicted to submit evidence ranging from video clips from the accident and the communication records filed between the ferry and Vessel Traffic Services Center in Jindo.

More than 2,000 domestic and international press members came to observe and report on the first trial hearing of the defendants yesterday in Gwangju District Court.

Meanwhile, the five charges that were brought against the captain of the sunken ferry include homicide, attempted homicide, negligence of duties, violation of the Seamen Act, and a breach of the Rescue and Aid at Sea and on River Act.
