Survivors seek compensation 25 years after MS Estonia sinking

Twenty five years after the worst civil maritime disaster in Europe left 852 people from 17 different countries dead or missing, a thousand survivors and their families are seeking compensation from Bureau Veritas, the French registrar of the MS Estonia, a cruise ship that sank off the coast of Finland in 1994. The ferry manufacturer is also summoned to appear before Nanterre’s High Court. IMAGES
