star this property answer text <p>The UK Government is aware<ins class="ministerial"> that, on 20 November 2018, Italian authorities issued a warrant for </ins> <del class="ministerial">of</del> the seizure of the Marine Vessel Aquarius <del class="ministerial">by the Italian authorities</del> on grounds of waste pollution.<ins class="ministerial"> According to the ship's operators, the vessel has been at the French port of Marseille since 4 October 2018 and, in the absence of a Flag State, is unable to leave port. Consequently the warrant has not yet been executed. It</ins> <del class="ministerial">The vessel operated as a Search and Rescue vessel in the central Mediterranean by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) 'SOS Méditerranée' and 'Médicins Sans Frontières' until September 2018. This matter is now subject to Italian legal processes and it</del> is not appropriate for the UK Government to comment<ins class="ministerial"> on the legal process initiated by the Italian authorities</ins>. <del class="ministerial">We recognise the importance of Search and Rescue in the Mediterranean and value the contribution of NGOs in saving lives at sea. We are concerned about the increasing fatality rate that has coincided with the effective cessation of the Search and Rescue operations in the central Mediterranean due to the lack of assurances over safe disembarkation arrangements. We will continue to be involved with efforts to find a solution.</del></p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK Government does not support search and rescue operations in the central Mediterranean led by Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), however, we do support a range of other NGO-provided services to migrants. We value the contribution of NGOs to Search and Rescue in the central Mediterranean and are concerned about the increasing fatality rate that has coincided with the effective cessation of Search and Rescue operations, due to lack of assurances over safe disembarkation. UK Government officials have an ongoing dialogue with the NGOs and the UK continues to work with our international partners to seek solutions to the ongoing impasse over search and rescue in the Central Mediterranean.</p> more like this
