Sea Watch captain father hopes Germany intervention

But Germany says can’t intervene.

Berlin, July 1 – The father of the captain of the German NGO run Sea-Watch3 migrant rescue ship said Monday he hoped the German government would intervene on behalf of his daughter who is being held in Italy for abetting illegal immigration and allegedly ramming a tax police cutter.

But Germany said it can’t intervene.

Carola Rackete, 30, forced a ban Saturday to land her 40 migrants on the island of Lampedusa saying she was afraid some might commit suicide after being at sea for 17 days following a rescue off Libya.

Rackete now faces a prison term of between three and 10 years for ignoring Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s closed-ports policy and hitting the Guardia di Finanza ship, which she said she could not avoid and had not struck deliberately.
