The captain of the Pacific Adventurer cargo ship that spilled more than 270,000 litres of oil off the south-east Queensland coast in Australia is to face a five-day committal hearing next year. Filipino national Bernardino Gonzales Santos, 47, the captain of the ship Pacific Adventurer, faces charges of disposal of oil in coastal waters and failure to notify authorities. The charges were mentioned in the Brisbane Magistrates Court this morning. Santos and his employer, Swire Shipping, are due to appear again in court in May 2010.

In August, the owners of the Pacific Adventurer ship, Swire Shipping, agreed to pay $25 million compensation over the March oil spill disaster. The oil spill in March led to a massive clean up of Moreton and Bribie Islands and Sunshine Coast beaches.
