Philippine President Wants Ferry Owners Held Accountable

Philippine News, Posted: Jun 27, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. Philippine President Arroyo wants the owners of Princess of the Stars ferry, involved in one of the Philippines worst maritime disasters, held accountable, reports Philippine News. On an official visit to the U.S. Arroyo thanked the Bush administration which has pledged roughly $100,000 worth of emergency relief goods through the Philippine National Red Cross . The ferry sank in a storm Saturday and Philippine Coast Guard has confirmed that of the more than 850 passengers onboard, 124 died, 56 survived and the rest are missing. Ferry owner Sulpicio Lines has offered to compensate the victims families but says the vessel was in good condition and was cleared to sail by maritime authorities. He claimed that the accident was caused by the sudden change in the storms path.
