Italian Prosecutor’s Office – Maritime rescuers cooperate with smugglers

There have been reports about five years ago that rescue ships from aid agencies in the Mediterranean sometimes work with people smugglers. The SonntagsZeitung spoke to three Libyan smugglers. They assert that there are contacts between human traffickers and rescue ships. They want to ensure that their “clients”, the migrants, really get to Italy.

Large NGOs such as Doctors Without Borders or Save the Children deny the existence of such cooperation.
