European politicians should be ashamed of themselves, President Emeritus Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca said on Monday, referring to the migrants stranded on an NGO rescue ship.
160 migrants have been stranded on the Open Arms vessel outside Lampedusa for a number of days. No European country has allowed the vessel to dock in its ports. Malta said over the weekend that it would allow 39 migrants rescued in its SAR zone to be disembarked in Malta, but the NGO that operates the ship, Proactiva Open Arms, said it wanted all migrants to be allowed in port.
