Yes the Coast Guard does have supboena power. and not afraid to use it. I will wager they have subpoenaed everyone they expect to testify, Fifth Amendment or no.

HMS Bounty crewman says he urged abandoning ship:

By BROCK VERGAKISBy BROCK VERGAKIS, Associated Press

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) ó The chief mate of a replica 18th-century sailing ship that sank off North Carolina during Hurricane Sandy says he urged the ship's captain to abandon ship twice before he gave the order to do so.

One member of the HMS Bounty's crew died, and the captain was never found after the ship sank 90 miles off Cape Hatteras during the October storm.

A federal safety panel began hearing testimony Tuesday in Virginia to examine what led to the sinking.

John Svendsen says the ship was taking on water and had no power when it rolled over and sank. He also told investigators the captain didn't alert Coast Guard officials of the ship's deteriorating condition when he first suggested it.

Surviving crew members were among those subpoenaed to testify.

Re: Coast Guard hearing on Bounty's sinking Tuesday

The 18th is the last day of Bounty Crews testify in person, so it should be good. The rest of the week are conducted via phone with crews, except in the last day (Feb 21), CG will have the podium.

The hearing starts at 9 am to 4 pm everyday.

Too far for me to drive about 5 hours, so I take the easy way and stay at the Renaissance for two nites.

I think the Coast Guard can subpoena witnessed. Of course someone can take the fifth if he doesn't have immunity.

I will bring my iPhone, iPad and camera. I will take note and record the hearing as needed. I can't take picture or video during the hearing, but I can do so during breaks.

I hope this will answer many questions that we have. May be we can learn somethings out of this tragedy and most importantly that the families of the victims can find closure and peace.

I can't take a week off to attend the hearing, but I will be there for two days. I will go there with an open mind without any prejudice.

Re: Coast Guard hearing on Bounty's sinking Tuesday

I wonder if anyone is obliged to testify? I wouldnt think they could be so the owners wont.... the crew who have compensation cases in the pipeline, or considering it, wont. The engineer wont cos he may be held negligent or have difficult questions to answer....

I cant imagine too many lawyers would want their clients talking....

could be a interesting hearing.
