Instead it seems to have attracted your ire. I apologize if I've done anything to offend you by asking a question about this.

Mild curiosity. I might do some more digging, since nobody else here seems to know any more than I do.

Update 11 March 2022:

Pre-detention trial due soon (can't read the article because of paywall):

Quote:
Mate Scot Carrier detained longer after fatal collision

The pre-trial detention of the British helmsman of the coaster Scot Carrier has been extended by four weeks, the Danish police reported. The helmsman was arrested after the fatal collision with the Danish freighter Karin Høj.

So a hearing of some sort is due about now, whether for further remand or some kind of arraignment or even bail.

Grædende styrmand var påvirket og på telefonen, da dansk skib blev sejlet ned og to døde (TV2.dk, June 16, 2022)
Weeping pilot was inebriated and talking on his phone (tablet) when Danish ship was rammed and two people died

Full confession: He takes full responsibility for the deaths of the two Danish sailors. 18 months in jail, banned from piloting a ship in Danish waters for 12 years.
