They arrived with Carola Rackete: convicted of torture


They had arrived aboard the Sea Watch of Carola Rackete, the German commander of the ship who last year rammed a patrol boat of the Guardia di Finanza and had been recognized as torturers in the Libyan detention centers by some migrants disembarked by Alex & co of Mediterranea Saving Humans . The Messina Gup has now sentenced them to 20 years in prison each. These are Mohamed Condè, known as Suarez, 22 from Guinea, Hameda Ahmed, 26, from Egypt and Mahmoud Ashuia, from Egypt, 24. They had been arrested on September 16 last year at the Messina hotspot and accused of torture, sexual violence, criminal association, human trafficking and murder. The detention of the three, judged with the abbreviated rite formula, had taken place by order of the District Anti-Mafia Directorate of Agrigento.

The fact that they had arrived aboard Carola Rackete’s Sea Watch had been silenced by both the Interior Ministry and the police, but told exclusively by the newspaper.

Meanwhile, the landings of migrants continue unabated. The Lampedusa reception center is full. In a few hours numerous boats with 185 people arrived inside the port. After the arrivals of the past few weeks from Tunisia, those from Libya have resumed. All this despite the hard work of the Tripoli Coast Guard, which yesterday brought back about 200 migrants. And yesterday the Guardia di Finanza recovered 50 other people off the island, almost all from Bangladesh and Morocco. “They tell us that they are fleeing Covid – says a law enforcement operator employed in Lampedusa – and that they are coming to Italy because they have learned that they can now be regularized and that they can find a job”, after the announcement of Minister Teresa Bellanova. And he continues: «Now we are no longer waiting for them to arrive. We have been ordered to go and look for them. ” One wonders why, given that the Interior Minister, Luciana Lamorgese, in an emergency, Covid had spoken of “unsafe Italian ports”.
