Asylum seekers intercepted while attempting to reach Italy are being “stacked up” in makeshift cells for months at a time, according to leaked documents in Italy.

The migrants in such overcrowded boats are being placed in “mini-camps” – makeshift buildings – for up to four months, and, at times, sent off on makeshift trains. Asylum seekers are housed in cells that are so small they have been reported to fit through two or even three bus windows.

The asylum seekers are held at sea, many바카라사이트 are placed in freezing temperatures in “inadequate” accommodation, and are denied food, water, and basic medical care – which amounts to a form of torture, according to Italy’s top court.

더킹카지노Human Rights Watch (HRW) discovered that at least 827 people, most from Afghanistan, had been detained by the Italian coastguard during a 13-month period.

The vast majority were Afghans from north and central Afghanistan, and of these, some were detained for trying to reach Italy by sea. At least 15 were caught by the Italian coastguard on February 17th.

Asylum seekers detained in the so-called “Bagman-ship” were transferred from one boat to another on February 15th, leaving up to 40 unaccompanied children and adults stranded at sea at the port of Patalucci.

According to the Italian government, approximately 4,700 asylum seekers have be바카라사이트en apprehended by Italy’s coastguard, and another 1,500 are believed to remain at sea or had already been arrested.

HRW is calling on Italy to immediately transfer thousands of asylum seekers to European waters and to end the practice of keeping many of them at sea indefinitely.
