Spokesman for Libyan Coast Guard warns Europe, says the NGOs help the traffickers…and are suspected of receiving direct rewards for every migrant they bring to Europe.
“With a full return of NGO activities in the Mediterranean, there will be an exodus of migrants to Italy.” – Spokesman of the Libyan Coast Guard, Admiral Ayoub Qassem.
“The NGOs favor human traffickers…and we suspect that they get direct rewards, in addition to indirect rewards, for every person they bring to Europe,” Qassem added.
“The Italian government must not allow the migrants saved by these ships to disembark because otherwise the culture of emigration to Europe will spread again, with obvious repercussions for both Libya and Italy”, he added.
The Libyan patrol boat admiral also denounced “the continuous interference of NGOs in rescue operations”.
“We cannot continue to make speed races with NGO boats. When the rescue coordination center receives confirmation of our intervention, it must not allow others to take action. We do not want to clash with the NGOs,” Qassem continues .
“Every intervention they do is to encourage immigration into Libya from sub-Saharan Africa and to have greater political weight in Europe,” the Libyan officer continued.
“To this we add the material aspect: not only do they increase the collection of funds in their favor but we do not exclude that they have funding directly linked to the traffickers of human beings”, concludes the admiral.
* Brussels, Germany, France and other West EU states are encouraging more migrants to seek Europe and directly facilitating illegal migration by resettling the migrants. This cannot be denied. How else would one define it?
This is not only shameful but a scandal for Germany and the EU. Yet, too many in Central Europe remain silent (West EU leaders have already surrendered), like useless subjects, intimidated by the powers of Brussels.
So far only Hungary has publicly supported Matteo Salvini in Italy. Others appear to be more infatuated with EU federalist Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel, an ardent supporter of the UN Migration Compact.
Do they realize what is happening?
