Ai chơi thế
nhà thám hiểm truy tìm khó báu vẫn phải ở tù hơn 6 năm rồi vì không chịu khai chỗ giấu 500 đồng vàng...
A former deep-sea (biển sâu) treasure hunter (truy tìm kho báu) is preparing to mark his sixth year in jail for refusing to disclose the whereabouts of 500 missing coins made from gold found in an historic shipwreck (đắm tàu).
Research scientist Tommy Thompson has been held in contempt of court (không tuân lệnh tòa) since Dec. 15, 2015, for that refusal. He is also incurring a daily fine of $1,000.
Thompson's case dates to his discovery of the S.S. Central America, known as the Ship of Gold, in 1988. The gold rush-era ship sank in a hurricane off South Carolina in 1857 with thousands of pounds of gold aboard, contributing to an economic panic.
Despite an investors lawsuit and a federal court order, Thompson, 69, still won't cooperate with authorities trying to find those coins, according to court records, federal prosecutors and the judge who found Thompson in contempt.
Thompson says he's already said everything he knows about the coins.
