Mariana Gkliati in Der Spiegel on the persecution of rescuers in Greece
Mariana was interviewed by der Spiegel on the persecution of NGOs and rescuers in Greece.
The article is entitled ‘From helpers to prisoners’ and deals with the prosecution of humanitarians with charges of smuggling. Since 2016 we have noticed a growing tendency to criminalise NGOs that are active in search and rescue in the Mediterranean. This is currently in the international spotlight after the arrest of the Syrian swimmer Sarah Mardini and Sean Binder.
