The Italian prosecutor investigating the Costa Concordia sinking has notified the court he will seek indictments of several Costa employees, including its captain.
Prosecutors based in Grosetto, Tuscany, will seek to try Capt. Francesco Schettino for manslaughter as well as causing a shipwreck and abandoning a vessel, according to an Associated Press report.
Five other Costa Cruises employees, including two officers on the bridge, would also be charged with manslaughter, the AP said.
Schettino and the others would also be tried on lesser offenses, if a judge accepts the prosecutor's recommendations, according to a three-minute YouTube video posted by the prosecutor's office.
Costa itself would be charged with "destruction or deterioration of a protected habitat inside a natural site," according to the video.
The Genoa-based cruise line has not issued a statement regarding the indictments, a spokesman said. Follow Tom Stieghorst on Twitter @tstravelweekly.
