The second officer of the Zim Asia ship that collided with a Japanese fishing boat in September of last year was sentenced to six months of community service on Sunday. Pilastro Zdrako, a Serbian national, was convicted in accordance with a plea bargain on seven counts of negligent homicide. The Israeli cargo ship, Zim Asia, weighing some 40,000 tons, hit the Shinsei Maru 3 in international waters near the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido. Only one fisherman survived the collision.
