Four officers from a cruise ship, which began listing in the Dodecanese Island’s harbor on Tuesday, were charged of deliberately trying to run the vessel aground by a prosecutor in Rhodes yesterday.

Carrying 930 tourists on a Mediterranean cruise, the Dream, sporting the Bahamas flag, began listing by 10 degrees when it docked in Rhodes.

According to the prosecutors suggestion the ship's captain, first mate and two engineers, all Greek nationals, intentionally endangered the vessel's safety when they moved ballast from one tank to another.

While divers investigate the cause of the ship's problems, all four suspects, along with a representative of the company that owns the ship, are being held at the Rhodes Port Authority. It has been claimed that the vessel struck an object while sailing from Turkey.
