    “We can not rule that out, but we do not have any reliable information about it,” said the spokesman for the NGO Sea-Watch, Ruben Neugebauer, according to the news agency dpa.

    Other migrants have recognized the three alleged perpetrators in Italy. They are accused of raping, torturing and killing people in Libya. The suspects were arrested in the reception center in Messina, Italy.

    They were tracked by the Agrigento mobile squad and the very serious charges were filed of “criminal association dedicated to the management of an illegal prison center”, complete with torture, rape, kidnapping and murder.

    The Italian newspaper Il Giornale reported on it. Neugebauer emphasized that pro-immigration organisations do not have the means of scrutinizing the people on their ships. “They come without passports.”

    Carola Rackete illegally took migrants to the port of Lampedusa on June 29, ramming a ship of the Italian Financial Police. On that day, the three suspects arrived together with the other migrants. The captain is under investigation for aiding and abetting illegal immigration.

    Sea-Watch legal council Giorgia Linardi told journalists in Rome in July that Interior Minister Matteo Salvini would be “a monster” if he did not help to pick up migrants at sea.

    According to Linardi, staff at Sea-Watch were tired of being called “vice-smugglers, criminals, or sea taxi drivers, without having any proof of it”.

    Rackete, a 31-year-old German national, was detained after refusing to comply with a ban on entering Italy’s territorial waters. The vessel was carrying more than 40 migrants.

    The German skipper has always said that she did not regret for having forced the naval blockade.

    The three criminals were met by a delegation of the Democratic Party, when the parliamentarians supported Rakete against Salvini, to invoke the opening of the ports.

    Chiara Giannini said “according to reliable sources” the new boss at the Interior Ministry Luciana Lamorgese had asked for the news not to be published. But instead, the news was made public as well as the names of the three suspects: Mohammed Condè, 27, Hameda Ahmed, 26 and Mahmoud Ashuia, 24. The first is from Guinea, while the other two are from Egypt.

    The leader of the League commented: “Not only did she violate the laws and rammed a Guardia di Finanza patrol boat – on June 29th the Sea Watch3 of Carola Rackete allowed three immigrants accused of violence, rape, kidnapping, murder to disembark in Italy. PD parliamentarians had boarded to demand the landing of all immigrants, including those who are now suspected of being ferocious criminals.”

    Finally, the popular political leader announced the possibility of filing a complaint against the German activist: “We are asking the Prime Minister, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Justice Minister and the Interior Minister for explanations. We are ready to denounce Rackete and the parliamentarians who wanted the landing at all costs. They should apologize to Italy.”

      The crimes perpetrated by the accused likely occurred in the context of their service for ISIS, al-Qaeda, or other jihadists who now operate in Libya. The UN-backed “government” of the GNA in Tripoli and surrounding areas allows such groups free hand in the country, as well as letting the “migrant express” operate from the Tripoli coast. Migrants travel thousands of miles across the African continent to get to Libya, moving through territory controlled by jihadists, who collect “taxes” from the organized criminal groups that smuggle the illegals. It’s all connected.
