NGO

Iuventa 10 is a group of ten migrant rights defenders and the crew members of the humanitarian rescue ship Iuventa which belongs to the German NGO “Jugend Rettet”, which had helped to save more than 14,000 people in distress at sea. On 20 June 2018, the Trapani Public Prosecutor’s Office notified the ten crew members of the ongoing investigations into “aiding and abetting illegal immigration to Italy”. A conviction would result in 5 to 20 years imprisonment and a fine of 15,000 euros per rescued person.
