Lawyers for the former ship’s captain charged over the sinking of the Costa Concordia cruise liner sought permission on Monday to examine the wreck for evidence, a week after salvage crews in Italy raised it off the rocks.

The raising of the Costa Concordia, one of the most complex shipwreck recoveries ever undertaken, has opened the way for a new quest for clues sought by prosecutors and the man charged with causing the accident, former captain Francesco Schettino.

“It is now possible to conduct an expert search for evidence on board the Concordia,” Francesco Pepe, one of Schettino’s legal team said as the trial in a converted theatre in the town of Grosseto resumed after the summer break.
