The captain of the Russian cargo ship that steered his vessel into the Gwangan Bridge last week has been handed over to the prosecution.
The Busan Coast Guards have charged the 43-year-old captain of the SeaGrand for damaging the ship due to negligence of his duties.
They say his professional negligence resulted in injuries and violations of maritime safety laws and laws on entering and leaving the port.
The captain has subsequently been handed over to the prosecution by the Busan coast guards.
Local authorities have also sent the cargo ship in for investigation.
