Pas­sen­ger seeks in­junc­tion

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A Pi­raeus court yesterday started hear­ing the ap­peal by a 70-year-old pas­sen­ger for an in­junc­tion against two ship­ping com­pa­nies, Su­per­fast Fer­ries and ANEK Lines, in con­nec­tion to the Nor­man At­lantic ferry which caught fire while trav­el­ing be­tween Greece and Italy at the end of last year. Eleven peo­ple died on board the ferry while another 18 re­main un­ac­counted for. The 70-year-old truck driver, who had been a pas­sen­ger on the ferry, claims to have suf­fered ir­repara­ble dam­age to his leg and spine fol­low­ing the fire, which started on the car deck on the morn­ing of De­cem­ber 28. In a bid to es­cape the flames, he jumped from the ship’s deck into the sea, a fall of some 15 me­ters.
