Hat tip to Zero Hedge for breaking the story that there are 15 ships operated by NGO human traffickers in the following mapping sequence. Winter Watch wishes to add more who’s-who details. Begin by watching the video below. The “rescuing on the seas” narrative at this stage is a deception and a scam. This is industrial-scale human trafficking. They are making the whole trip, picking up passengers just offshore in Libya and ferrying them to Italy. The trafficker monitors are using Marinetraffic.com and Data.unhcr.org.
The whole scheme is promoted online and even is offering an “alarm phone number” for smugglers and traffickers making their way. The voice in this video sounds American. The literature and information printed by the traffickers can be viewed here.
Since the Italian coast guard does nothing to stop this, it must be presumed they are being bribed, heavily compromised or, at minimum, are highly negligent. These actions are criminal as few of these migrants are eligible for asylum. However, the EU has created loophole legislature to protect people traffickers against prosecution. A dedicated section of an EU resolution entitled “On Search and Rescue” states that “private ship masters and non-governmental organisations who assist in sea rescues in the Mediterranean Sea should not risk punishment for providing such assistance.” These are not sea rescues.
So that Europeans can take action, hold people accountable and build criminal cases or complaints against these actors, here are the websites of the NGOs. The names and locations can also be determined as well as contact information.
The Italian coast guard site is here (in Italian). Italian citizens should make inquiries in their own language and use the Gefira tracking information to make the case. Of course, you can also go over the heads of the coast guard, if you believe they are corrupt.
For instance, after the cargo is trafficked, you will see (in the case of Jugend Rettet) that most of the team and ambassadors are located throughout Germany, which is the end destination for most African illegals. In Germany you can see them loitering everywhere in public spaces, conducting little shakedowns aka aggressive begging, pimping, and selling drugs.
MOAS is run by an American Christopher Catrambone and his Italian wife, Regina, out of Malta. According to the Zero Hedge source, the MOAS organisation has close links with the famous U.S. military contractor Blackwater and the U.S. Army.
The board and staff of the Boat Refugee Foundation (Stichting Bootvluchteling) is located in the Netherlands, Postbus 360, 3500 AJ Utrecht, firstname.lastname@example.org. The staff is laid out by name, and this group is largely operating in Greece.
This is website of MSF out of the UK.
Save the Children’s website advertises itself as assisting African children in place, an honorable objective. However, they also run a ship in the Mediterranean.
Trafficker Proactiva Open Arms can be found here.
Sea Watch is running two ships. It is located in Berlin and also lobbies for open border regimes.
Sea Eye is headquartered out of Regensburg, Germany. They had two boats, but one was confiscated by the Libyan government.
The last trafficker, Life Boat, is again out of Hamburg, Germany, and is running one sea craft.
