The hometown newspaper for missing crew member Angelo Faliva, reports that the popular Italian program "‘Chi l’ha Visto?" will again feature the mysterious circumstances surrounding the disappearance of young Mr. Faliva from the Coral Princess cruise ship operated by Princess Cruises.
Cremona On Line’s website states:
"Questa sera a ‘Chi l’ha visto?’ sarà trattato il caso di Angelo Faliva, il cuoco di 32 anni scomparso misteriosamente sulla Coral Princess il 25 novembre scorso. La nave da crociera su cui lavorava era in crociera nei Caraibi."
"‘Chi l’ha Visto?" is a very popular television show in Italy which covers the disappearances of loved ones who vanish under uncertain and discomforting circumstances. (We will link the video of the show once it is available.)
The mystery of Princess crew member Angelo Faliva is a story which we have carefully followed since his "disappearance" last November.
This type of incident – which has not received much coverage in the U.S. yet – demonstrates the fundamental corruptness of the foreign flagged cruise industry. Crimes and disappearances often go un-reported, un-investigated and un-prosecuted because of the indifference of the flag countries and the desire of the image-obsessed cruise lines to sweep the problem under the rug.
This is a particularly disgraceful story because the cruise line, Princess Cruises – of "Love Boat" fame – has provided no useful information to the grieving Faliva family. The "investigators" in Bermuda, where the cruise line registered the cruise ship to avoid taxes, labor and wage laws as well as legal accountability, are doing nothing. This is exactly why cruise lines pay countries like Bermuda – in the middle of nowhere – to register their cruise lines.
We will be following this story closely. To bring yourself up to date regarding the plight of the Faliva family, consider reading:
