    Sewol Movie Released | The Maritime Executive

    The movie After the Sewol has been released on iTunes. It explores the changes in South Korean society after the sinking of the Sewol ferry on April 16, 2014. Two British film makers talk with relatives of the victims, rescue divers and activists and embark upon a journey to uncover how the tragedy came about, looking deep into Korean history about why no action was taken to prevent it in the first place.

    Thank you for sharing ImaginaryNumber. This will be a sad recap of a very tragic event. Glad a documentary was made. Those who died deserve to have their story told and hopefully this will help prevent future tragedies.

    Daiquiri, just now read that story. The pictures say it all. There are no words to describe the pain caused by this.

    Sewol wreckage to be erected next month | The Korean Herald

    The wreck of the Sewol ferry, currently lying on its side at the southwestern port of Mokpo, is expected to placed in the upright position next month so search teams can carry out a detailed inspection of the vessel for the remains of people who have not been found. Under existing plans, efforts will be made to get the Sewol upright on May 31, and the subsequent search of the ship should take about two weeks. Afterwards, an investigation of the hull will be carried out to determine the exact cause of the accident, a special investigation committee said.

    Sewol: External Shock Not Ruled Out | Marine Executive

    A year-long investigation into the 2014 Sewol ferry disaster has concluded that the cause of the sinking was either problems with the ship or an unknown external shock such as collision with a submarine or other object.

    According to the investigation panel, potential ship problems that could have caused the disaster were a sudden turn made by the ship, the excessive cargo loaded and modifications to the ferry that could have affected her stability and buoyancy. The Sewol was carrying twice her permitted cargo tonnage at the time of the capsize and the crew had reduced ballast to compensate.....

    In July, Seoul's Central District Court has ruled that families of the Sewol victims are to be paid 200 million won ($176,000) each. An additional payment will also be made to the parents and other family members. Adding in compensation for lost income for those that died, each family is set to receive around $530,000.

    The South Korean government has been criticized for what is widely seen as its botched rescue attempt. Dozens of officials and company officers have since been prosecuted in relation to the case.

    Wow. Such incompetence. Even the first radio contact from the Captain was a classic amateurish communication. Fancy leaving important decisions to such an idiot.

    "Following appeals by prosecutors and the accused, on 28 April 2015 Captain Lee was found guilty of murder and his sentence increased to life imprisonment, while those for 14 other crew members were reduced to a maximum of 12 years, including 10 years for chief engineer Park, whose murder conviction was overturned.[254] Judge Jeon Il-ho explained: "We drew a distinction between the Captain Lee Joon-seok who has a grave responsibility and crew members who took orders from the captain."

    Often people have that "small but real" chance thrust upon them...And they are unprepared. As I said in the Costa Concordia thread, the real issue is how many lives of people we are willing to entrust to a single man.
