Kuki, here is the link to the full story. No one knows better than I that true and complete facts are seldom found in news stories, but assuming that this is true, I stand by my assessment.

"This guy is not sick and he demands NOT to be thrown off the ship, but something bad may happen, so my God let's get rid of him and turn him over to third world medicine -- that way if he dies we have washed our hands of him, right???"

It was a tough call, and maybe one of those damned if you do damned if you don't situations, but I think they handled it with extraordinarily poor judgement. Is that the way you would want your father, or your wife treated Kuki? Me Neither!
