The treatment should include the twelfth rescued that had already been evacuated to Malta last Friday because of health problems.

According to Farrugia, the rescued will be taken to Spain once they receive medical care and recover. "Malta was not obliged to accept them because they were not picked up in maltese waters, and Malta was not the closest port", continued the spokesperson.
