The salvage vessel Open Arms, which was docked in a port in Tunisia waiting to amainase the temporary, he has since headed this Thursday to the fishing vessel Our Lady of Loreto, which is from a week ago to 100 miles of the libyan coast 12 migrants on board, among them two minors. Separated by more than 20 hours of journey, the meeting should not occur until the morning of this Friday. The operation was launched after one of the migrants, one of three egyptians on board, desmayase on several occasions. After seven days at sea riding out a strong gale, the rescued begin to show symptoms of weakness and dehydration. “We have no doctors, we need help,” he told this newspaper Vicente Sampere, the second pattern of the fishing boat.

Before the fading of the young, it seemed that everything would end this Thursday. In the early hours of yesterday, the boat received an email from the coast guard libyans to coordinate the delivery of the migrants. The captain Paschal Durá suggested that it was about 20.00, but the coast guard, unable to leave due to the bad weather, they ended up giving the fishing two libyan ports of Tripoli or Al Khums. The suggestion reinforced in a statement from the vice-president Carmen Calvo, but the crew declined the offer. “The priority is to take care of the health of these people. We can't go to the port”, they have insisted on board of the fishing boat. The Open Arms has a doctor and a nurse on board who will be a check to the rescued.
The Our Lady of Loreto is blocked in the area of search and rescue libya from the Thursday to the 20 hours when he witnessed a rescue thwarted by a patrol libya. The fishing, which faenaba to about 80 nautical miles from the libyan coast (about 150 km), coincided with a boat of rubber that he tried to flee the coast guard libyans. Not stated the total number of migrants who were traveling in the boat, but one of those rescued said that they were going to porno izle 36, including six women. Before the arrival of the libyans, three of the migrants climbed to the gunwale of the fishing boat, while others jumped into the water. After collecting a party of shipwrecked, the coast guard turned back and left back to the 12 that are now in the fishing.
Since then, the Government of Spain is trying to unclog the situation to the refusal of Italy and Malta to open its ports to migrants rescued. The Spanish government maintained from the start that Libya, being the nearest port, it would be safer to disembark the survivors. That interpretation has mobilized the United Nations Agency for Refugees (Unhcr), the Spanish Commission for Refugee Aid (CEAR), Save the Children and the Association of Lawyers Extranjeristas of Spain, among others, that have rejected full that Libya can be considered a safe harbor at the amount of testimonials that have documented the rape and torture suffered by migrants in the country maghreb. Since Wednesday, however, the Government has reinforced that continues to make representations to the Governments of Italy and Malta to find an alternative solution “soon.”
The position of the Government has meant a shift in its policy towards the rescue operations of migrants in the central Mediterranean, where so far this year has killed more than 1.277 people, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM). Since I decided to embrace the Aquarius in June, with 630 persons on board, the Executive of Pedro Sánchez has offered on three occasions over a safe harbour in Spain. On the last occasion, in August, the Government negotiated with its european partners, the distribution of 141 migrants rescued by the Aquarius and Malta agreed to open its port to desembarcarlos. The delivery of the rescued to the libyan authorities was never on the table, mainly, because the humanitarian organizations of the rescue refuse to take them there.
The conversations both with Libya, as with Malta and Italy, are not as fast as you would like to the Spanish Executive. The crew of the fishing boat, determined to prevent the rescued to be returned to Libya, passing the days with little information about what your destiny will be. Don't even understand what the coast guard libyans and write to them, and have to resort to Maritime Rescue, with whom they maintain contact from the first day, to translate the communications. “These we write in English thinking that we are Cambridge”, launches with irony the second pattern.
