Migrant rescue ship captain sues Matteo Salvini for libel

Migrant lifeboat captain arrested in Italy sues Matteo Salvini for libel after series of insults from the extreme right-wing minister (who responds by calling her a & # 39; rich, spoiled communist & # 39;)

  • Carola Rackete accuses Matteo Salvini of & # 39; stirring the turbulent waters of hate & # 39;
  • She was arrested for forcing the migrant ship into the port after a two-week distance
  • Salvini had her a & # 39; criminal & # 39; and reacted angrily when she was released

The captain of a migrating rescue ship arrested in an Italian port last week will prosecute the hard-line Interior Minister Matteo Salvini for libel after a series of insults.

Carola Rackete accuses Salvini of & # 39; stirring the troubled waters of hate & # 39; after he found her a & # 39; criminal & # 39; and a & # 39; pain in the a *** & # 39; mentioned Sea-Watch 3 in a row above the migrating ship.

However, an undisturbed Salvini immediately hit back by being a & # 39; rich and spoiled communist & # 39; to name.

& # 39; She breaks laws and attacks Italian military ships, and then she prosecutes me & # 39 ;, said the Salvini migrant.

Rackete & # 39; s lawyer Alessandro Gamberini told the Italian radio: & # 39; We have prepared the legal complaint against Minister Salvini.

& # 39; It is not easy to make a complete list of all the insults that Salvini has made in recent weeks. & # 39;

The line erupted over the Rackete ship, Sea Watch 3, which carried 40 migrants, but access to Italy was denied.

After a distance of two weeks, Rackete forced his way to the port on the island of Lampedusa, on the way to hit a police speedboat.

Rackete was arrested but this week she was released by an Italian judge for acting to save lives – a decision that also caught Salvini & rage.

During and after the two-week outage, Salvini launched a series of angry tweets on 31-year-old Rackete, including her a & # 39; pain in the a *** & # 39 ;, & # 39; criminal & # 39 ;, & # 39; delinquent & # 39; and & # 39; poor woman trying to kill only five Italian soldiers. & # 39;

She reacted furiously to her release and promised to & # 39; one by one & # 39; stop further lifeboats and called her a & # 39; danger to national security & # 39 ;.

Two other investigations, accused of helping human traffickers and opposition to the authorities, are still ongoing after they have nestled along Italian customs ships.

Sea Watch, a German charity, said earlier this week that Rackete & # 39; had been abandoned throughout Europe & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Carola did her duty and was abandoned by all European countries and international organizations, & # 39; said Sea-Watch's Italian representative, Giorgia Linardi, in Rome.

& # 39; The captain, like her duty, and assisted by none of the authorities contacted, with shipwreck survivors, set out for the nearest safe harbor, & # 39; Linardi said.

The charity said she was then in hiding awaiting her next lawsuit because of & # 39; numerous threats & # 39 ;.

The migrants were allowed to disembark at Lampedusa and be taken to a reception center because they were preparing to travel to various other EU Member States who agreed to take them.
