"The destruction of coral reefs near the Islands of Raja Ampat, which were created by nature over hundreds of years, was committed less than 1 day "Caledonian Sky" and its captain" Joko Hartoyo from the information Desk and law coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs , said in a statement. "Restore the part of the Raja Ampat is simply impossible. Fish that are commonly seen in this area has disappeared."

About 140 thousand square feet (more than 13 thousand square meters) of the reef was destroyed, CNN said Ketut Putra, Vice President of Conservation International Indonesia. He said that the ship crashed into one of the best areas of diving. Cruise company, which operates the ship, has apologized for the incident. The statement said that the ship ran aground, but does not explain why.

"We work with local experts to understand how we can help restore the reef. We value our relationship around the world with the locals, and we regret that influenced the local community," the statement said. The company said it will create Fund of the help to the local economy and help to pay for the repair.

Although insurance might cover a portion of environmental damage, the Indonesian authorities stated that, in their opinion, the captain has committed a crime and can be sentenced to prison in case convicted. "The insurance company may be willing to pay for environmental damage, but it does not remove the criminal aspect of the matter," said power.

The company described the duty of the master during the accident as "one of the world's leading captains of the expedition" and said that he has many years of experience.
