In this 5th program in the series, Dr. Cartner addresses the trial of the Costa Concordia Shipmaster, Captain Francesco Schettino, in realtion to the prosecution’s suggestion that Schettino was guilty of cowardice. Dr. Cartner argues that a Master can be found guilty of failure to perform his/her duties, but not cowardice. It should be noted that this interview was recorded a few hours prior to the Italian court’s decision to convict Schettino of Manslaughter, sentencing him to 16 years in prison. Dr. Cartner will shortly be providing subsequent thoughts based on the court decision through an updated “Conversations with Cartner” blog that will accompany this video.
