Under the court’s binding ruling, the 64-year-old captain of the Viking Sigyn cruise ship will now be kept under criminal supervision for a maximum period of four months.
The captain has been ordered to wear a tracking device and must appear in person before the authorities investigating the collision twice a week, the court noted in a statement. The captain was taken into custody on June 1 on suspicion of criminal misconduct.
Viking Sigyn collided with a sightseeing boat that had 33 South Korean tourists on board and a crew of two Hungarians. Seven tourists were rescued from the water after the collision.
