Thousands of immigrants arrived on the Italian island of Lampedusa within a short period of time – and their number tripled compared to the same period the previous year. Meanwhile, marine lifeguards are criticizing the disability by the authorities.

aThe small Italian island of Lampedusa on the Mediterranean has brought in more than 2,000 migrants by boat within a short period of time – and the number of boats is expected to increase on Monday. This was reported by ANSA news agency. In Italy, alert calls increased after the number of arrivals tripled compared to the previous year.

On Monday night, patrol ships off Lampedusa picked up several hundred people from small boats and took them ashore. Others, according to Ansa, arrived at the coast themselves. This means that the number of men, women and children registered on the island by 20 drops within 24 hours, increased to 2128. Lampedusa is located between North Africa and the main island of Sicily, to which the island administratively belongs. Usually around 6000 people live in Lampedusa.

The regional president of Sicily, Nilo Musomisi, spoke of an „unresolved humanitarian tragedy of migrants in the Mediterranean region”. Everyone knows that many migrants will die at sea in the coming weeks. He wrote on Facebook: „But no one raises their finger, neither in Rome nor in Brussels.”

12,900 immigrants arrived in Italy

In recent weeks, marine rescue workers in the Mediterranean have also noted that a large number of migrants are once again making the dangerous journey to Europe in inflatable boats and small wooden ships, often from Libya and Tunisia. One reason, she said, is the good May weather with the often calm waves.

According to statistics of the Ministry of the Interior in Rome, nearly 12,900 immigrants had arrived in Italy by Monday morning since the beginning of the year. A year ago there were 4,180 at the same time, with a particularly large number coming from Tunisia, Ivory Coast and Bangladesh. Right-wing parties, including Lega, former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, have warned of „thousands of illegal immigrants” over the weekend. The party leader called for a meeting with Prime Minister Mario Draghi. “With millions of Italians in trouble, we cannot think of thousands of illegal immigrants,” Salvini said.

Salvini announced Sunday evening that he would seek solutions with Interior Minister Luciana Lamorghese. Lamorgese has already been in contact with Draghi due to the increasing number of boat migrants, according to ANSA. The Italian government is trying to quickly redistribute boat migrants within the European Union (EU) to other countries. However, many of these countries are resistant to it.

Refugees and other migrants protested in Agios Theodoros, Greece, in mid-February because they had to leave their places of residence.

More people are also arriving from the Mediterranean island of Malta. Alarm Phone has called for the help of five boats with more than 400 passengers in Maltese waters. „The situation on board the ship is critical,” the organization said. „Rescue is needed now!”

The rescue ship „Sea Watch 4” was arrested in Sicily

Meanwhile, marine rescuers have reported being obstructed by Italian authorities. On Monday, marine rescuers told the German relief organization Sea-Watch that they feared their „Sea-Watch 4” vessel would be detained for a longer period in the Sicilian port city of Trapani due to an official order. Rescuers arrived there last week with more than 450 migrants on a boat.

A Sea Watch spokeswoman said the crew is currently under quarantine for 14 days. After that, however, it was not clear if the vessel would be allowed to set sail again. According to the organization, „Sea-Watch 4” was arrested again based on an order issued in September 2020, and because of that, it was already detained at the port.

This was, meanwhile, lifted until the Italian Coast Guard lodged an interception recently. Judicial authorities in Sicily said that during a search of „Sea-Watch 4”, a large number of life jackets were found on board. The authority said the ship’s sewage system was not designed for such a large number of people who had been rescued.

The Italian Coast Guard confiscated another ship of the organization, the „Sea Watch 3”, in the Sicilian port of Augusta in March. In this case, too, the authority relied on violations of safety regulations. This means that none of the organization’s ships can currently leave the port.

The sea route across the Mediterranean is one of the most important routes for people on their way to Europe. According to statistics from the International Organization for Migration (IOM), nearly 530,000 people have arrived in Italy in this way since the beginning of 2015.

However, the route between North Africa and Sicily is also one of the most dangerous migration routes. 359 people have died, according to the International Organization for Migration. The United Nations estimates that just over 500 migrants have drowned.

Only agree to surrender: This is how Turkey blackmails the West in the NATO conflict – Politics

Published

on

Recep Zarakulu has been an enemy of the Turkish state for half a century. After the military coup of 1971, the 74-year-old appeared in court for the first time – due to contacts with Amnesty International.

Zarakulu later co-founded the Turkish Association for Human Rights and published books on the Armenian Genocide and the Kurdish Question as a publisher.

Today, he is on a list of 40 alleged „terrorists” whose extradition Turkey has made a condition of Finland and Sweden agreeing to NATO membership. The Zaracolo case shows why Turkey has so far been unable to convince the West of its demands.

[Alle aktuellen Nachrichten zum russischen Angriff auf die Ukraine bekommen Sie mit der Tagesspiegel-App live auf ihr Handy. Hier für Apple- und Android-Geräte herunterladen.]

Finnish and Swedish negotiators spoke for the first time about the NATO dispute with Turkish government officials in Ankara on Wednesday. Then Ibrahim Kalin, spokesman for the Turkish presidential office and advisor to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, spoke about the positive attitude of the Nordic countries towards Turkey’s demand to lift the arms embargo imposed since 2019.

But Turkey is not satisfied with that. She is asking for tangible proof from Helsinki and Stockholm that they are moving away from The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which is run as a terrorist organization. They also insist on handing over opponents of the Turkish government.

Zaracolo has lived in Sweden for ten years

According to Ankara, 28 people in Sweden and 12 in Finland on the Turkish list are dangerous enemies of the state and can be attributed to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, far-left groups or the movement of Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen.

Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told the Haberturk news channel that Turkey does not want to hear excuses such as referring to EU rules. Turkey’s demands must be met — even if Finland and Sweden have to change their laws to allow for deliveries.

Zaracolo is watching developments from Sweden, where he has lived for nearly ten years. He told exiled radio station Ozguruz Radio that he did not believe he would be extradited.

Sweden’s highest court had refused to extradite him in 2019. Contrary to what is happening in Turkey, Zarakulu said, the government in Sweden has to abide by court decisions. Ankara might assume that the government in Stockholm can act like the Turkish government in its own country: by pressuring the judiciary to enforce its will.

Two years ago, I started new investigations

The Zaracolo case illustrates how far apart European countries and Turkey are in understanding the law. A human rights activist in Turkey should not be imprisoned for using or advocating violence.

He was convicted of giving a lecture at a legitimate Kurdish party. According to the Turkish judiciary, he was convicted of supporting a terrorist organization.

Two years ago, the Turkish Prosecutor General’s Office launched new investigations against him: In an article in the left-wing newspaper „Evrensel”, Zarakulu compared Erdogan to former Prime Minister Adnan Menderes, who was executed in 1961 after a military coup. . Prosecutors accused Zaracolo of calling for the article’s overturn to be violent.

Zarakulu said in the interview that there was no legal basis for extradition – after talks in Ankara on Wednesday, Erdogan’s advisor Kalin said the exact opposite: there is no legal basis for refusing to extradite „terrorists”.

There is also a deceased person on the list

Bulent Kenes, the former editor-in-chief of a newspaper affiliated with the Gülen movement, is also on Turkey’s extradition list. He is accused of involvement in the 2016 coup attempt. Another opponent of the government, Kurdish politician and journalist Mehmet Sirak Bilgin, is on Turkey’s extradition list but died seven years ago.

the list It could potentially serve as a bargaining chip in modern poker, which Ankara could give up in exchange for concessions. The most important thing for Turkey is to end the arms embargo imposed on European countries. Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson has made it clear that her country does not send weapons or money to terrorist organizations.

The Turkish government accuses Sweden of supporting the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Syria.

Erdogan’s veto threat prevents Finland and Sweden, which are seeking NATO protection because of Russia’s war against Ukraine, from easily joining NATO.

Turkey faces a lack of understanding on the part of its allies. Only Russia is benefiting from the conflict, the German ambassador to Turkey, Jürgen Schulz, said at a security conference in Istanbul. Christoph Heusgen, president of the Munich Security Conference, said at the event that Turkey could better solve its problems with Finland and Sweden after they joined NATO more than before.

Russia plans to put gas profits in Ukraine attack

Published

on

The export of gas and other fuels brings Russia several billions of additional revenue. Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said some of the money could be used in the Ukraine war.

Russia expects an additional income equivalent to 13.7 billion euros this year from the export of fossil fuels. „We expect up to an additional trillion rubles in oil and gas revenues,” Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on state television on Friday, referring to the Economic Development Ministry’s latest forecast. Part of the extra income can be used to continue the Russian attack on Ukraine.

He said the government wanted to spend the extra revenue this year rather than putting it aside. The finance minister said the money should be spent on „additional payments” to pensioners, families with children and „special operation” in Ukraine, citing Russia’s war against Ukraine.

Gas and oil have so far been excluded from sanctions

The West has imposed a series of sanctions on Moscow to punish the Kremlin for sending troops to Ukraine. So far, Russian oil and gas supplies have been exempted from sanctions. Russia is currently reaping record revenues due to the high price of gas.
