Captain Rescue Ship Lifeline Prosecuted For Wrong Registration

Captain Rescue ship Lifeline Prosecuted for Wrong Registration. The captain of the ship Lifeline, from the German aid organisation Mission-Lifeline, is being prosecuted by the judiciary in Malta and must be presented on Monday.

 

The Maltese lawyer of the organisation announced this on Thursday, writes INC News.

Captain Claus-Peter Reisch tried for errors with the registration of the ship. The Lifeline hung a Dutch flag, while the boat officially does not sail under that flag.

According to the Dutch authorities, the ship not registered in the designated land register.

The Maltese police interrogated Reisch for the second time on Thursday.

He was allowed to float his boat, after days in bad weather on the Mediterranean, to build in Malta on Wednesday evening.

He had about 230 migrants on board. Shortly afterwards, Reisch had already investigated by the police.

In the first instance, the investigation focused on why the Lifeline crew did not transfer migrants picked up by Libya to the Libyan Coast Guard, as the authorities required.
