Malta: Far-right anti-migrant vessel 'not welcome' in national waters

Valletta (dpa) - The Maltese government on Saturday shunned a vessel steered by a group of anti-migrant activists, refusing to provide water supplies to its crew and rejecting a request to allow one of the crew members to be transported to Malta en route to France.

"The vessel is not welcome to Malta," a government spokesman told dpa. "We disagree with all that it stands for."

The C-Star, manned by a dozen or so right-wing extremists, has been embroiled in controversy for its mission to block the rescue of refugees from the Mediterranean Sea.

Those on board aim to patrol the coast of Libya in a mission they call "Defend Europe" and describe migrant arrivals in Europe as part of an "invasion" endangering the continent.

"Europe and Malta stand for solidarity and respect for human dignity," the Maltese spokesman said, adding that the requests made were not a case of emergency.

Malta‘s decline prompted a sharp reaction from the far-right group Defend Europe, which accused Malta of becoming a gate for illegal immigration to Europe, and of closing its borders for European citizens.

"Malta, that is allowing NGO vessels to use Valetta as their HQ, is denying the #cstar port acceptance," according to a tweet from the group.

Malta hosts one of the biggest rescue NGOs, the Migrant Offshore Aid Station. 

On Thursday, the multinational network of far-right activists said the chartering of the C-Star had been an unqualified success, despite the boat spending less than a week patrolling the area off Libya.
