This week, police in Hungary are expected to question the captain of the cruise ship suspected of causing last month's fatal collision with a tourist boat in Budapest.
The South Korean government's response team said Monday, local time, that police will pass on the schedule to Korean authorities as well.
The captain, identified as Yuriy Chaplinsky, was released on bail last Thursday,. after being arrested earlier this month.
But he's required to wear an electronic tracking device and meet with investigators twice a week.
The captain has denied responsibility for the collision, but police suspect the cruise ship failed to warn the smaller boat that it was going to overtake, and of failing to alert the police about the collision.
The collision happened on May 29.
The death toll stands at 25, which includes 23 South Koreans.
Seven people were rescued from the boat, and the search continues for the three still unaccounted for.
