Ministries Set Up Team to Examine Raising ‘Sea Diamond’ Wreck

A nine-member working group that will process and study economic issues relating to the raising of the “Sea Diamond” cruise ship which ran aground and sank in the Santorini caldera in 2007 was set up by the relevant ministries.

The ship, which belonged to Louis Cruise Lines, sank on April 5, 2007, after running aground off Santorini the previous day, leaving two passengers missing and presumed dead. The working group will also assist the municipal coast guard of Santorini during the raising, removal or neutralization of the wreck, aiming to limit and avoid further sea pollution.
