S.Korea court jails captain of doomed ferry for 36 years

GWANGJU South Korea (Reuters) - The captain of a South Korean ferry that capsized in April killing 304 passengers was jailed for 36 years on Tuesday after a court found him guilty of negligence, but was acquitted of homicide for which prosecutors had sought the death penalty. The court convicted the ship's chief engineer of homicide for not aiding two injured fellow crew members, making him the only one of four facing homicide charges to be found guilty on that count, and sentenced him to 30 years in prison #Business #Japan #Brazil #Middle East #South Korea #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #opinion
