Prosecutors in Italy have requested the indictment of four foreign nationals accused of being human traffickers. They were allegedly responsible for the migrant boat that was later rescued by the Italian Coast Guard ship Diciotti. The boat is at the center of a legal case involving Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.
The Palermo prosecutor's officer has requested the indictment of four alleged traffickers that were at the helm of a boat rescued in August 2018 by the Diciotti Coast Guard ship. The ship was later stuck in the Catania port for days because Interior Minister Matteo Salvini issued the order that the migrants and refugees should be prevented from disembarking. The interior minister was accused of kidnapping as a result.
