'Sea Rescues Have Been Criminalized' as German Boat Captain Faces 20 Years in Prison For Saving Refugees

"We have only followed international law, especially the law of the sea, where the highest priority is to save people from distress."


A German boat captain faces a long and costly trial in Italy for charges targeting her humanitarian efforts on behalf of refugees.
"Italy's fascists are using this case as a showcase to deter others from aiding migrants. They would prefer to let people drown in the Mediterranean."
—Rula Jebreal
Captain Pia Klemp, 35, told Basler Zeitung on June 7 that her upcoming trial in Italy for years of efforts with the civilian lifeboat "Iuventa" that saved at least 1,000 lives will take years and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Klemp faces up to 20 years in prison, but, she said, whether or not she ends up in jail—she would challenge any conviction in the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France if necessary—the damage has been done.
"The worst has already come to pass," said Klemp. "Sea rescue missions have been criminalized."
Pia Klemp, a German biologist & boat captain faces 20 yrs in prison for rescuing 1,000+ migrants at risk of drowning whilst crossing the Mediterranean. Seeking asylum is a human right. Only 1 in 100 sea captains are female. This woman is a humanitarian, not a criminal. #FreePia pic.twitter.com/VPgacPUfco

Along with helping refugees, Klemp works with ocean conservation group Sea Watch.
The Italian charges against Klemp come as part of an anti-immigration crackdown by far-right Interior Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, who ran on imposing harsh penalties on refugees.

Yep, same here. If you give a migrant dying of thirst in the Sonora Desert a bottle of water, it's up to 20 years.

But if you dress up like Rambo and threaten that same migrant with a rifle, no problem. You're a patriot.

So, you are saying that Native Americans should have sent European immigrants back to their point of origin?

Yes, but if you give the migrant a bottle of water and bring back to Mexico, your not only a patriot, but smart.

My thought exactly.. she is no better than a human smuggler, and prove that she is not a smuggler and just came up with an elaborate story to cover her ass.

You are such a humanitarian, eh. She tries to help drowning people and you think she has ulterior motives. Could it be a reflection of your ulterior motives?
You would probably boink her at the drop of a hat, though, eh?

Unfortunately they couldn’t, and those in first contact wanted access to their wesponry to use against their enemies .

If she was dropping them off at places in southern Europe with a customs facility then I would vehemently argue that the charges are bullshit. If she deliberately dropped them off at places to avoid customs, then she's still guilty of human smuggling. Her alleged humanitarianism notwithstanding.

The Native Americans didn't exactly just roll over and take it. Unlike you appear to want to do. "Oh my god, I feel sooooo guilty about Whitey "stealing" this land I'm going to insist we invite even more people to move to this "stolen" land." It's amazing how you can "defend" and ignore the FN at the same friggin' time.

Yes, the Huron ( whom the french did not give guns to), now pretty much extinct (they have been replaced with Ojibwa by the government there after) found out all about that from the tribes the British and Dutch did arm. After that it was a white guy who took control of pretty much the whole merkin fur trade. John Jacob Astor.
(You probably do not want to know what "conspiracies" goes with that family name over the years.)

Guess who has all have super expensive cottages now on the prime shoreline real estate?

Guess what natives are STRONGLY still in possession of their own nationality within the US and Canada?

the natives who had the guns.

OK, now the gun haters should all learn an IMPORTANT lesson here, if that were even possible.

The refugee boats are targets for NATO if they are not just run over by a warship.

No she didn't. Her program is to go in search of boatloads of "refugees" and bring them into Europe. On dry land she would be a Coyote.

Done properly we would have never wound up with the Quebec problem.

LOL...Ironically, if they had armed the Huron, they probably would still be in charge.

Of course she shouldn't rescue them. Not only is Europe full but she shouldn't be encouraging people traffickers.

Quite aside from the "Europe is full" deal.......................................
