Fascist Italian minister of interior, #Salvini threatens to send refugees back to Libya during stand-off with #Malta

The Italian minister of interior Salvini from the fascist Lega party, keeps playing with the lives of refugees. During the night hours 450 refugees were crammed in a wooden boat in international waters. Although the refugees are rescued now, Salvini threatens to send them back to Libya.

A ship operated by EU border agency Frontex and a vessel owned by Italy’s tax police finally rescued the refugees near the Italian island of Linosa and more than 100 nautical miles from Malta, which rejected pressure from Italian minister of interior Salvini on Friday to rescue them.

France and Malta offered to take 100 (50 to each of the two EU member states) of the rescued refugees, but there is no confirmation that other EU member states will also receive some of the refugees that are trapped on two ships now, because Italy and Malta are not giving permission to the ships to enter any of their harbours.

The power struggle between nationalists and fascists of several EU member states is again fought on the back of people seeking refuge. In the past months several private rescue ships were not allowed to sail out to rescue people anymore
