Migrant Transport NGO Announces Plans for New Vessel to Resume Operations in 2019

Only days after ending migrant transport operations, NGO SOS Méditerranée has announced they will be replacing their current vessel with a new one to resume operations in the New Year.

The group released a statement this week saying that they had not entirely given up on their commitment to picking up migrants off the Libyan coast despite the announcement from their partner Doctors Without Borders (MSF) that the Aquarius would be ending operations last week.

The NGO blamed European governments for the shut down of operations saying, “This is the result of a sustained campaign, spearheaded by the Italian government and backed by other European states, to delegitimise, slander and obstruct aid organisations providing assistance to vulnerable people.”
