He also speaks with Costa CEO Pier Luigi Foschi, the lawyer for the ship’s captain Francesco Schettino, and International Maritime Organization Secretary General Koji Sekimizu about responsibility for the disaster.  U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) discusses the safety and compensation issues raised by the Costa Concordia.
