“Can you please confirm how many of the deceased were in contact with @IOMlibya re voluntary return prior to departure as the majority may not have applied for or qualified for asylum. Does your policy and advocacy goals only extend to people who are in the water?”

“Can you please confirm what assistance was provided to Libyan survivors of the latest ship wreck as there seems to have been multiple launches which are not documented by your organisation?”
@GronerTimi, said: “No, the dead are the result of a provoked distress at sea and a high probability of rescue with transfer to Europe. That’s the problem. First of all, all travelers should in principle be brought back to the start. Yes, to Libya. IOM and UNHCR then have to take care of it.” (By Voice of African Immigrant)
