NGO calls for criminal probe into migrant deaths off Libya

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

TRIPOLI – Mission Lifeline, a German non-governmental organization that operates in the Mediterranean, has called for the International Criminal Court to investigate the death of migrants off the Libyan coast on Monday.

In a tweet, Mission Lifeline accused the European Union agencies Frontex and Eunavfor Med, which police the bloc’s border and coastguard activities, of of deliberately ignoring the distress of migrants and called on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate.

At least a dozen people died after a rubber boat which spent more than 10 days at sea capsized off Misurata on Monday. Ten survivors were rescued and returned to Libya.
