Carola Rackete defied Italy’s ban on migrant rescue ships by forcing her way into the port of Lampedusa last week.

She was immediately arrested and is facing the prospect of a long trial on charges of aiding illegal immigration and attempting to ram a patrol vessel. The Guardian correspondent Lorenzo Tondo has spoken to her... Show more...

Forty-one migrants disembarked overnight at the port of Lampedusa, after a charity vessel that rescued them off Libya defied an attempt by the far-right interior minister, Matteo Salvini, to close Italian ports to NGO boats.

The Italian-flagged Alex, run by the NGO Mediterranea, was escorted by the Italian coastguard and on Saturday the ship was seized by police, the captain investigated for aiding illegal immigration and the migrants eventually disembarked. Mediterranea has also been fined €16.000 (£14,300).

The elite antimafia division of the Palermo prosecutor’s office has charged an adverb with the crime of human trafficking, defence lawyers and language specialists have said.

Charges against “Mesi” were brought as part of a sprawling international investigation on human smuggling, but it appears Sicilian magistrates confused the word for “when” in the Tigrinya language of Eritrea with the name of a man they thought was a powerful smuggler.
