This thread interests me ... media seems to have lost interest ... and I am told today that 25 persons have been found dead in the CC wreck and that 24 dead bodies have been identified (9 Germans, 6 French, 5 Italians, 2 from Peru, 1 Hungarian and 1 Spanish), i.e. one person found is not yet identified ... two months after the incident!!!! Seven other persons have been reported missing after the incident but have not been found ... dead or alive ... and we don't know who they are. All according what I am told. You wonder who the seven, still missing are ... crew or passengers? Why does not media look for them?
According the ship owner, Micky A, the ship was insured and the leading underwriter (i.e. insurer) has decided that the ship is a constructive total loss, CTL, which means, CTL, ... what? Micky thinks he will be paid €415 million minus €30 million (deductible) ... and that that's it. Hm, Micky thinks it is normal that a ship sails 1 meter from shore at 16 knots and rips open the hull 1 meter below waterline ... and sinks! And that insurance pays for THAT? Well, Micky may not be too intelligent ... he just inherited the lot 1992 and for that you need IQ 0. It was not difficult!
What about the wreck? Well, Mickey (or his Co) has maybe (??) been paid and is not concerned. Missing people? Sorry, Micky A is no longer involved.
But what about the wreck? What to do with it? To whom does it belong ... if any?
Life is complicated.
Can anybody now occupy the wreck and start dismantling it?
No, no. The wreck belongs to someone, e.g. the insurer (and its leading underwriter, whoever it is?) and it has to decide what to do.
It can simply abandon the wreck and Italy has to clean up the place! BUT, watch out ... there may be seven dead people there.
And, personal belongings still aboard the half sunk wreck of the 4 200 survivors still belong to them!
