Sąd skazał kapitana, który wyłowił z morza migrantów i przekazał ich Libijczykom

"At the time of the alleged delivery to Libya in July 2018, then-interior minister Matteo Salvini had firmly closed Italy's ports to any and all vessels carrying migrants - even his own nation's merchant vessels and coast guard cutters.

Salvini personally announced that Thalassa would not be allowed to return to Italy with migrants on board, leaving her unable to operate commercially until another vessel took on the rescuees. Any attempt by Asso Ventotto to deliver her own rescuees to Italy would likely have encountered the same roadblock. "
