The fishing boat Our Mother Loreto, who has been ten days locked in front of the coasts of Libya after rescuing 12 migrants, is heading to Malta after receiving last night a communication from Sea Rescue, telling them that finally they had authorization to disembark the shipwrecked in the european port. One of the migrants was already in Malta since Friday after being evacuated by helicopter because of health reasons. "We are very happy. I have not yet been able to tell them because they are asleep and I want to rest, but finally we have been given a safe harbor. When you awaken I will tell you that iran to Europe, as they wanted", has declared THE COUNTRY the pattern, Pascual Durá.
Durá had decided last night to go back to Spain and heedless of the instructions of the president of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, urged to observe international law and to go to the port more safe and close, in allusion to Libya, a country in which auction and torture of migrants. But finally, when it took "several hours" journey into Spain, came the authorization to go to Malta, about one in the morning. At ten this morning, Our Mother Loreto was just a one-hour european port.

The ship's master refused at all times to disembark the Gobahis migrants in Libya. "It is not a safe harbor for them and for us. Malta yes", he adds. Durá laments that everything has been stretched so much, but is satisfied with the outcome. "When we let the guys come back to fish to be in the house on 21 or 22 December to Christmas," adds from the Our Mother Loreto.
On his Twitter account the Proactive organization Open Arms, has attributed this decision to the directions of the Executive. "The Government now dictates to Our Mother, Loreto head to Malta. Late, bad and unscrupulous. Playing with the safety of the people, 10 days without news, a temporary hard, a person evacuated in a helicopter and a high risk to the entire crew," wrote the organization.
In a press note, the Government has ensured that it has carried out negotiations "at any moment" to carry the fishing boat to "a port nearby and safe." "The european migration policy should be common and we should all comply with international regulations and community", he adds. The Vice president of the Government has avoided reporting on the terms of the negotiations with Malta and if there is a deal between the european partners of migrants or will all be hosted by Spain.
The family Durá has rescued nearly a hundred immigrants on the high seas in two boats in the last twelve years. In 2006, Joseph, father of the pattern of Our Mother Loreto, went up to Francis and Catherine 51 shipwrecked, among them a pregnant woman and a girl of two years, in the waters of Malta. On that occasion he had to wait a week while a half-dozen countries negotiating the distribution of the immigrants. This time, his son has spent ten days with them in the boat until finally we have given a solution. One of the survivors had to be evacuated on Friday in a helicopter because he had seizures.
