April 12, 2020A still unknown number of people would have died at sea following the sinking of a sunken boat between Malta and Tripoli. He denounced it in a Sea Watch tweet, explaining that "250 people had drifted since yesterday on 4 rafts", which had between 47 and 85 people on board, and that one of these boats capsized and people were shipwrecked .

Reported yesterday
The four boats - one with 72 people on board, one with 47, one with 55 and the last with 85 - were reported yesterday to Sea Watch by Alarm Phone, the telephone service for migrants in difficulty. Sea Watch herself had asked for the intervention of the European Commissioner for Human Rights "to clarify that the rights of the people saved at sea must be guaranteed regardless of which ship is rescuing them". The NGO then explained that the European Frontex agency has today reported the boats at sea, one of which is upside down.

🔴Let yourself die alone on Easter Day by a Europe that speaks empty of solidarity towards people who suffer.
