13. SOUNDBITE: (Korean) Jeon Ilho, Gwangju High Court Public Relations Officer:
"The Appeal Court considered the fact that an announcement was made urging the passengers to stay put, even though the captain and crew members were escaping and the measures regarding the order to abandon ship were not taken. Based on these facts, the court found that the crew members did not give the order to abandon the ship and acknowledged that Captain Lee Jun-seok was guilty of wilful negligence."
14. Jeon briefing the media
15. SOUNDBITE: (Korean) Jeon Ilho, Gwangju High Court Public Relations Officer:
"While punishing Captain Lee Jun-seok for not living up to his important responsibility as the captain, the crew members, who follow the captain's orders, got their sentences reduced. It is based on the recently set standards for derelict crimes, (on the) measures they took to rescue the passengers, the reason they came on board in the first place and their medical conditions. As a result, Captain Lee Jun-seok gets the life sentence and the rest of the crew got the sentences ranging from one and a half to 12 years."
The South Korean ferry captain responsible for last year's disaster that killed more than 300 people, mostly school children, was given an increased sentence of life in prison on Tuesday by an appellate court that convicted him of homicide.
A district court in November had sentenced Lee Joon-seok to 36 years in prison for negligence and abandoning passengers in need but acquitted him of homicide in the Sewol ferry disaster.
Victims' relatives criticised both verdicts, saying it was too lenient.
"He should have received death penalty. Imprisonment for life? They want to give life sentence to a person so that he can peacefully die when he is old?" Jeon Myung-sun, father of Sewol ferry victim Jeon Chan-ho told the protesting families of the victims who had staged a demonstration outside Gwangju High Court.
Lee's sentence was increased because the Gwangju High Court additionally convicted him on the homicide charges while upholding most of other charges that led to his November conviction.
Last week, South Korea formally announced it would salvage the ship from the ocean floor off the country's southwest coast.
Relatives of the victims hope that might locate the missing, including four students, and help reveal more details about the sinking.
