The document disturbed the peace of the dead
The court in Sweden decided for the third time whether the documentary filmmakers taking footage for television from the wreck of the ferry Estonia, which sank in 1994, disturbed the peace of the dead, wrote Donaukurier. With the help of the robot, they discovered, among other things, a multi-meter opening in the ship, which was not known about before. The documentary won an important Swedish journalism award in 2020.
In the first retrial in 2021, the filmmakers were acquitted. According to the court, their actions were criminal under Swedish law, but their conviction is not possible because the robot was launched from a German-flagged ship in international waters. Germany did not sign the agreement on disturbing the peace of the dead. The appeal instance saw it differently and returned the case to Gothenburg.
Estonia sank with 989 people on board en route from Tallinn to Stockholm off the coast of Finland. 852 people died, only 137 survived. Because many of the dead were not recovered, the wreck is protected as a final resting place and must not be visited, the paper explains.

After a new trial, the defendants were sentenced to fines. According to the court, journalist Henrik Evertsson and wreck expert Linus Andersson can be tried under Swedish law. “There is a strong public interest in respecting the peace of the dead in the case of the ship Estonia, because it is the grave of a large number of people,” the president of the senate said. However, the journalistic motive of the act is an extenuating circumstance. The defendants were fined 470 and 560 Swedish crowns, equivalent to 1,750 and 2,100 euros. Both are considering an appeal – according to them, these are important journalistic issues. Photo: Deník/DK/ Lehtikuva
