Migrant disaster: Italy threatens to close ports

Post Impasible on Wed 28 Jun - 22:22

Greater than 73,000 migrants have landed in Italy this 12 months

Italy has threatened to cease vessels of different nations from disembarking migrants at its ports.

It comes as Italy’s consultant to the EU, Maurizio Massari, warned in a letter to the bloc the scenario had change into “unsustainable”.

Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni has accused different European nations of “trying the opposite means”.

An estimated 10,000 persons are believed to have tried the journey from North Africa up to now 4 days.

Greater than 73,000 migrants have landed in Italy this 12 months, a rise of 14% on the identical interval final 12 months.

Some 2,000 have died or are lacking feared drowned, the UN’s refugee company says, the overwhelming majority making an attempt the crossing from Libya.

Libya is a gateway to Europe for migrants from throughout sub-Saharan Africa and likewise from the Arabian peninsula, Egypt, Syria and Bangladesh. Many are fleeing conflict, poverty or persecution.

The Italian coastguard takes the lead in co-ordinating rescue operations, however most of the vessels run by non-profit teams sail below the flags of different nations – together with EU nations like Germany and Malta.

An Italian authorities supply informed Reuters: “The concept of blocking humanitarian ships flying overseas flags from returning to Italian ports has been mentioned.

“Italy has reached saturation level.”

The European Commissioner for Immigration, Dimitri Avramopoulos, additionally met Italy’s Mr Massari to debate the disaster.

“Italy is correct that the scenario is untenable,” he mentioned, including that the nation’s administration of the disaster was “exemplary”.

It was time for EU member states to “step up”, he mentioned, and contribute monetary help to Italy if wanted, together with support to African nations like Libya to cut back the numbers of individuals leaving – a promise made in February.

“Now’s the second to ship, and we’ll maintain them to this,” the commissioner mentioned.

“In every part we do, all of us have a humanitarian obligation to save lots of lives… we can not depart a handful of EU nations on their very own to take care of this.”

Italy’s warning follows a poor displaying by the centre-right Democratic Social gathering in native elections on the weekend, dropping out to the anti-immigration messages of Forza Italia and the Northern League.

It isn’t the primary time that ships belonging to NGOs have been issued a warning by Italian authorities.

In April, an Italian prosecutor claimed humanitarian charities were “colluding” with people smugglers in Libya, alleging that telephone calls have been made between the 2 events.


Italy has seen greater than 500,000 migrants arrive by boat since 2014.

The closure of a land route north by the Balkans has added to the stress.

There was talk of the UN and/or EU setting up and policing refugee camps in North Africa. Did they start that? It would be better to spend the money on that than have all those migrants coming into Europe. Once they are here it is unlikely they will go back.

I think the best thing would be to just say what is no more, no less than a truism: That these people are not our responsibility, and that those who do try to enter must go back.
