With both Costa and Carnival as a whole stepping away from him and getting on the side of the prosecution as an injured party we shall see. Also with Costa ships being Italian flagged, there is a certain level of national pride here as well that I am sure will be addressed in court. Combine that with so many cruiselines having Italian officers, the Italian courts might go for the extreme to "prove a point" that they take such things very seriously.
