    Humanitarian ship with 64 migrants on board is stuck in the Mediterranean after Italy

    Humanitarian ship with 64 migrants on board is stuck in the Mediterranean after Italy's Matteo Salvini says: 'Take them to Germany!'


    • Sea-Eye's ship, the Alan Kurdi, rescued the migrants off Libya on Wednesday
    • On Thursday the vessel was close to the Italian island of Lampedusa
    • Matteo Salvini said on Wednesday that the ship could 'go to Hamburg'
    • Sea-Eye said such a voyage would take three to four weeks and was impossible

    A humanitarian vessel with 64 rescued migrants was left stuck in the Mediterranean after Italy's Matteo Salvini said it could 'go to Hamburg.'
    Malta refused the ship entry to their waters as it sailed close to the Italian island of Lampedusa on Thursday after the migrants were hauled from the sea on Wednesday.
    The Maltese and Italian refusal sets the stage for another Mediterranean stand-off that will only be resolved if European governments agree to accept the asylum-seekers.
    Italian Interior Minister Salvini stated on Wednesday the ship could head to Germany but Sea Eye's spokeswoman said that was 'out of the question.'

    Sea-Eye's ship, the Alan Kurdi, in the waters off Libya on Wednesday - it had voyaged to the region to search for 50 migrants missing from Monday and another 40 from the week before

    Carlotta Weibl said 'it's a journey of 3-4 weeks. We don't have food and water.'
    Weibl said: 'Malta says we can't enter their waters and we are unlikely to get permission from Italy.'
    Sea-Eye's ship, the Alan Kurdi, rescued the migrants on Wednesday near Libya.
    It did so as it was looking for a boat with 50 migrants missing since Monday and 40 migrants missing since last week.
    'The chances are low that they are alive,' Weibl said.
    Similar stand-offs in recent months involving rescue ships hoping to reach Italy and Malta were eventually resolved when other EU members agreed to take some of the migrants.
    However, many of those people still remain stuck in migrant centres in Malta and Lampedusa.
    The Alan Kurdi ship is named after a Kurdish boy who drowned in the sea at the age of three in 2015 as he and his family fled war in Syria.

    An image of his small lifeless body prompted an outpouring of sympathy for the plight of migrants.
    However, since then the mood in Europe has turned.
    Weibl said that at the moment, the Alan Kurdi is the only humanitarian ship operating in the Mediterranean because many governments have denied aid ships the permission to operate.

    Head of Migrant Transport NGO Under Investigation for People Trafficking

    The head of migrant transport NGO “Mediterranea Saving Humans” Luca Casarini has been interrogated by Italian officials who are investigating his organisation for abetting illegal migration.

    Casarini, along with the commander of the vessel the Mare Jonio Pietro Marrone, is under investigation by the prosecutor’s office of Agrigento after the ship illegally entered Italian waters carrying migrants, Il Giornale reports.
    Deputy prosecutor of Agrigento Salvatore Vella questioned Casarini this week and shortly before the interrogation began, Casari told reporters, “Of course I will speak. I will answer very willingly. There are others who hide and escape from trials.”

    Several weeks ago, the Mare Jonio picked up 49 migrants off the coast of Libya and caused controversy because they did not wait for the Libyan coastguard to arrive before they collected the migrants, who were in an inflatable dinghy about 40 miles off the Libyan coastline.
    The ship’s crew claimed on Twitter, “We are already helping them,” and announced they would be heading north to Italy despite populist Interior Minister Matteo Salvini having closed all ports to migrant transport NGOs last year.
    “We are heading north to avoid bad weather, we are heading towards Italy where we will ask for a safe harbour to disembark these escaped people from Libyan concentration camps,” Casarini told Italian media at the time.
    74 people are talking about this

    The Italian coastguard then prevented the ship from landing in Italian territory, escorting it to Lampedusa where the vessel was confiscated.
    “From here on in, Italy has a government which defends its borders and enforces respect of its laws, above all as regards human traffickers,” Salvini said shortly after the vessel had been taken by authorities.
    Since the closing of Italian ports to migrant transport NGOs, the number of migrants entering Italy illegally has massively declined, as has the number of drowning deaths in the Mediterranean sea.
    The number of migrants has dwindled so low that last month, NGO Sea Eye claimed to have not seen a single migrant during a three-week operation off the Libyan coast.

    Confiscate these vessels and ship them all back home!

    No more human trafficking and no more invading our countries.
