Family of Cristito M. Acosta (Missing 3rd Officer) contacted ‘Human Rights At Sea’ an organization which work for human rights issues at sea and operates in several countries. This organization helped their voice to be heard to the top level brass of the company. Well now CEO has promised that a full independent third party investigation is currently going in the case. Surely a investigation will tell as what happened in this case. Was it a foul play by the crew members on ship? Only the time will tell when the reports of the investigation will be out in public. Every year many seafarers go missing out at sea, and some of the cases gets closed, without an proper investigation in this matter.
