Cosco Busan Owners Indicted on Felonies

Multiple felonies, to be precise. Yesterday, a federal grand jury indicted the Hong Kong firm that owns the Cosco Busan, the ship that smashed into the Bay Bridge and killed thousands of birds with fuel oil, on charges that they falsified reports and impeded an investigation into the affair. Fleet Management Ltd. representatives declare that they had discovered errors in the reports they submitted to the federal government and have suspended numerous employees while they look into the matter. According to the Chron, an attorney for pilot John Cota says the indictment goes a long way toward exonerating his client and placing the blame where it belongs.
