ILLEGAL MIGRANTS RESCUED BY MALTESE MILITARY 20 MARCH, 2014

The Armed Forces of Malta’s Rescue co-ordination Centre at Luqa Barracks was alerted to a boat which required assistance, carrying some 91 migrants on board (including 5 women).

After locating their inflatable rubber dinghy, in a position some 25 nautical miles off Gozo, the Maritime Squadron’s Diciotti-Saettia class offshore patrol vessel, the P-61, was diverted to the area to assess the situation and render assistance as required.

On arrival on site, the migrants in distress were taken aboard the Maltese military patrol vessel, which landed them safely to Malta Police immigration authorities at the Maritime Squadron’s Base of Haywharf, Floriana.
