Sea Watch commander probed

Captain of search-and-rescue ship accused of aiding immigration

(see related) (ANSA) - Agrigento, May 20 - Prosecutors have put Arturo Centore, the commander of the Sea-Watch 3 search-and-rescue ship, under investigation for allegedly aiding illegal immigration, sources said on Monday. Investigators have put the vessel under sequester. At the weekend a group of migrants rescued in the Mediterranean by the ship was allowed to disembark in Lampedusa despite Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini's policy of closing Italy's ports to NGO-run search-and-rescue vessels.
