When Francesco Schettino abandoned the Costa Concordia after the cruise ship ran aground on the Italian island of Giglio two years ago, a furious harbor master ordered him to “get back on board, damn it!” On Thursday, Schettino finally did. Schettino, who was charged with manslaughter after 32 people died when the Costa Concordia crashed and capsized on Jan. 13, 2012, asked permission to join investigators on a scheduled visit. According to the Corriere della Sera newspaper he told a few locals at the port, “I am here to tell all of you that what you were told was a lie,”.
