Both the Chinese captain and first mate of the Full City oil tanker that ran aground outside Langesund in Telemark has been found guilty.

Nedre Telemark District Court sentenced the captain to jail for six months, of which four months is suspended, for breaches the Pollution Control and Ship Safety and Security Acts.

The first mate was found not guilty of breaches of the Ship Safety and Security Act, but received a jail sentence of two months for breaking the Pollution Control Act, five weeks of which are suspended.

Both the captain and the first mate were given a probationary period of two years.

Their lawyer, Brynjar Østgård, tells NRK they will be appealing the court’s verdict.
