Italy migrant crisis: Charities ‘colluding’ with smugglers

Italy migrant crisis: Charities ‘colluding’ with smugglers, by the BBC.

An Italian prosecutor says he has evidence some of the charities saving migrants in the Mediterranean Sea are colluding with people-smugglers.

Carmelo Zuccaro told La Stampa (in Italian) phone calls were being made from Libya to rescue vessels. … He said that telephone calls were being made from Libya and rescuers were shining lamps to direct smugglers’ vessels and turning off transponders so boats could not be traced. ….

Organisations involved in rescue operations have rejected accusations of collusion, saying their only concern is to save lives.

The left needs more voters. NGOs are just an outreach arm of the left leaning western bureaucracies. And as the Blair government is Britain has admitted, the left wants to fundamentally transform society using immigrants: “Labour wanted mass immigration to make UK more multicultural, says former adviser,” by Tom Whitehead in 2009:

The huge increases in migrants over the last decade were partly due to a politically motivated attempt by ministers to radically change the country and “rub the Right’s nose in diversity”, according to Andrew Neather, a former adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett.

He said Labour’s relaxation of controls was a deliberate plan to “open up the UK to mass migration” but that ministers were nervous and reluctant to discuss such a move publicly for fear it would alienate its “core working class vote”. …

Critics said the revelations showed a “conspiracy” within Government to impose mass immigration for “cynical” political reasons.
