New details emerging... and pretty much as I expected:

From a newswire report:

The ship's captain and 5 other officers were indicted on charges of negligence, breaching safety regulations, and polluting the environment. The captain blamed strong currents for sweeping his vessel into the reef just before docking, but locals said that it took over 30 minutes to contact him for instructions on assisting the evacuation.
Umm... 30 minutes to contact a captain who had just hit a reef? Once again, was he drunk, or maybe packing his bags?
