Costa Concordia Captain Francesco Schettino to go Back on Board

Francesco Schettino, the captain of the cruise liner that ran aground off an Italian island two years ago, has been allowed to go back on board by a Tuscan court.

Judges in the city of Grosseto agreed to a request by lawyers for Schettino, who demanded that he takes part in a survey of the Costa Concordia later this week.

The request came as a team of lawyers and experts were due to inspect an emergency power unit on the 11th deck of the liner, which allegedly did not work on the night of the shipwreck in January 2012.
