Concordia bridge tampered with, says Schettino lawyer
Cruise ship boarded for first time since righted23 January, 14:28
"The scene is no longer as it was, there's been a complete modification of the state of things". "Maybe work was done here by people who had no interest in clarifying things...Now nothing is traceable to the real conditions at the moment the ship sank". A group of technical experts, judges and lawyers boarded the Costa Concordia to provide evidence for the trial of Schettino, who faces charges of multiple manslaughter and dereliction of duty. It is the first time the Concordia has been boarded since the successful outcome of a parbuckling operation in September to raise it from its semi-submerged perch off Giglio.
