The officials in Italy suspect that rescue vessels operated by charities and humanitarian organizations co-operate with smugglers based in Libya. Some of these NGOs act as a sort of “taxi service” by picking refugees up just off the African coast and then transporting them across the Mediterranean Sea to Italy instead of returning them to Africa, Italian officials say. Italy has received more than half a million migrants in the last three years,. Nowadays there is a word of a number of NGOs operating as ‘transport’ companies funded by billionaire George Soros, who pledged to invest up to $500 million in programs and companies benefiting migrants and refugees fleeing life-threatening situations.
Soros’s agenda aimed at the destruction of national borders in Europe in creation of new markets.
The Italian authorities are interested to investigate the funding of charity boats transporting the migrants. Critics of the charity boat operators say they are colluding with criminal smugglers and, in effect, are accomplices in the deaths of so many migrants trying to reach Europe.
“If the government does not decide to put a brake on these boats, we will find ourselves overrun by tens of thousands of African immigrants by the end of the year,” said Paolo Grimoldi, a lawmaker who belongs to the Lega Nord (Nothern League) party, Reuters reported.
