Italy immobilizes "Open Arms" for "serious anomalies"

The Italian authorities have immobilized the Open Arms ship in Sicily, where it is currently, after verifying that there are a number of "serious anomalies," the Italian Coast Guard said today in a statement.

Coast guards explain that they have boarded the ship and have verified that there are "serious anomalies related to navigation safety, compliance with legislation on marine environment protection and training and familiarization of the crew with emergency procedures provided on board. "

The ship may not leave the port of Porto Empedocle, where it is located, "until the technical and operational irregularities detected during the inspection have been corrected."
