Global Analysis from the European Perspective. Preparing for the world of tomorrow

NGOs are smuggling immigrants into Europe on an industrial scale

For two months, using, we have been monitoring the movements of ships owned by a couple of NGOs. Using data from, we have kept track of the daily arrivals of African immigrants in Italy. It turned out we were witness to a big scam and an illegal human traffic operation.

NGOs, smugglers, the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.

NGOs, smugglers, the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.

Human traffickers  contact the Italian coast guard in advance to receive support and to pick up their dubious cargo. NGO ships are directed to the “rescue spot” even as those to be rescued are still in Libya. The 15 ships that we observed are owned or leased by NGOs have regularly been seen to leave their Italian ports, head south, stop short of reaching the Libyan coast, pick up their human cargo, and take course back 260 miles to Italy even though the port of Zarzis in Tunis is just 60 miles away from the rescue spot.


The organizations in question are: MOAS, Jugend Rettet, Stichting Bootvluchting, Médecins Sans Frontières, Save the Children, Proactiva Open Arms,, Sea-Eye and Life Boat.

The real intention of the people behind the NGOs is not clear. We would not be surprised if their motive were money. They may also be politically driven; the activities of the Malta-based organisation, MOAS, by trafficking people to Italy is the best guarantee that migrants will not show up on the Maltese shore. MOAS is managed by an Maltese Marine officer well known in Malta for his maltreatment of refugees 1)The Americans from MOAS ferry migrants to Europe Source Gefira . It is also possible that these organisations are managed by naive “do-gooders” who do not understand that offering their services they are acting like a magnet to the people from Africa and thus they are willy-nilly causing more fatalities, not to mention that their actions are destabilizing Europe.

However high-minded the intentions of these organisations might be, their actions are criminal as most of these migrants are not eligible for being granted asylum and will end up on the streets of Rome or Paris and undermine Europe’s stability raising racially motivated social tensions.

Brussels has created particular legislature to protect people traffickers against prosecution. In a dedicated section of an EU resolution entitled On Search and Rescue, the text states that “private ship masters and non-governmental organisations who assist in sea rescues in the Mediterranean Sea should not risk punishment for providing such assistance.”2)European Parliament votes to protect ship masters during Mediterranean rescues Source Fairplay

During the two months of our observation, we have monitored at least 39 000 Africans illegally smuggled into Italy, which was done with the full consent of the Italian and European authorities.

More information:

In October we discovered that four NGOs picked up people in Libyan territorial waters. We have proof that these smugglers communicated their action in advance with the Italian authorities. Ten hours before the immigrants left Libya, the Italian coast guard directed the NGOs to the “rescue” spot:  Full account  “Caught in the act: NGOs deal in migrant smuggling”

The MOAS organisation has close links with the famous US military contractor “Blackwater”, the US army and the Maltese navy. Full account: “The Americans from MOAS ferry migrants to Europe”

There is a full account about the ships involved: “NGOs Armada operating off the coast of Libya”and how people are encourage to come to Europe: “Death road to Europe promoted on the web”

    • Well, the international law is very clear. People rescued at sea shall be taken to the closest SAFE harbour, which is Tunisia. NOT Europe. They are illegal and should be prosecuted and all the NGO boats should be confiscated. That is if we had a single politician in Europa with half a ball. What is going on now will destroy Europa socially, demographically, economically and in terms of security for all future.

      • Nisse Hullt. says:

        The NGO’s cooperate with the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centers And it is the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centers that determine what is the nearest safe harbor.
        Tunisia is NOT considered one of these.

        If you have a problem with that then call Maritime Rescue Coordination Center ROME and ash why they have determined Tunisia not to be safe.

  • This harmful smuggling needs to be stopped for many reasons. Really appreciate GEFIRA’s efforts to highlight this. Keep up the great work 🙂 Get the true facts to as many people as possible.
    If governments had wanted and started to take constructive actions 20+ years ago they could’ve avoided this situation of so much problems and heartache. I’ve found that fairly often the very same politicians that are war-mongering and war-profiteering are the loudest voices for encouraging more migrants come to Europe. For example, Tony Blair and the Iraq War.

  • Now this should be Publicized, and the Reason for the EU’s attack on Libya and its government made clear.
    It was to prevent the Libyan forces stopping sub-Saharan immigrants getting through Libya and on to boats
    bound for Italy!

    • who are you? your name highlighted led to an advert for domain names??? are you a troll trying to sway the attention from truth?

      • Leon Vermeer says:

        no you idiot, you just need to replace the . with a -. it’s a typing error. paranoid much? start questioning your own reasoning perhaps…

  • We do understand:

    The Topaz Responder From MOAS, Dignity 1 from MSF, The Bourbon Argos from MSF, The Vos Hestia from Save the Children are the big ferries

    We did not take into consideration the activities of the European Navy and Italian coast guard. It will make people, even more felt betrayed. People pay taxes for an army to keep people out. The situation is beyond absurdity. Why are they shipped 270 miles to Europe and 70 miles to port of Zarzis.

    The people you save are an imminent threat to the European population. There will be bloodshed on the streets of Europe.

    I wouldn’t be too vocal about your very sloppy research and I sure wouldn’t use them to come to you demonstrably ignorant conclusions.

    1) The rescue and transport of migrants to Italy is handled by the Rome Rescue Center. The NGO’s are under their command and control.

    2) You can’t see the number of coast guard, naval and military ships involved because they don’t have AIS. They do the bulk of the rescues if you actually took the time to research the numbers.

    3) Your allegations that MOAS has links with Blackwater is again an example of lazy you are in trying to make a negative connection between a journalist and a company that doesn’t exist, or present internationally known NGO’s as criminal organizations it just proves you don’t know you topic and you don’t do your research.

    4) Finally, smuggling is a crime. All of these NGO’s and the military are LEGALLY bringing people to Europe.
    Worse they can barely carry 200 – 400 people compared to the Navy ships which can transport thoudans. So please, if you want people to respect your views (forget your research). Get the basic facts right

    Yes the influx of economic migrants and refugees is an important topic. Why not take the time to do your homework without adding the ignorant bias? More people might read your blog.

    • Thanks for your comment. It is a very low-cost research and already regarded by colleagues as excellent. We know we made some associative links.
      We do not have the resources to fight against the powers which destroy Europe. Creating a relation map is very telling, we did the same for Ukraine.
      We are fighting against people with deep pockets and a lot of money.

      You are right; we noticed that European Military and coast guard ships are involved. They enable their AIS system when they are participating in this operations, for a short while.
      We will also investigate these organisations. This fact makes the story even more unbelievable and bizarre. These institutions are supposed to protect the European borders. When European citizens start to understand this, it will end in civil upheaval. We will check it.
      We stated the facts; other investigators are also wondering why these ships are bypassing Malta. But that is up to them to investigate.
      The Topaz Responder and the Bourbon Argos can handle a lot of people.

      We noticed that Chris Catrambone, Robert Young Pelton and Ian Ruggier are not your typical “do gooders”. They spend a massive amount of money on public relations and has access to an extreme sum of money. It is for others to figure out how they are funded. Do you have a link to their income statement?
      Maybe Chris is a true Samaritan, and that explain his involvement in Iraq. After all the US was in Iraq to help the Iraqi people. In this process the whole country is destroyed, million people are homeless and killed, Syria is a disaster, and the rot is now spreading into Turkey and Europe.

      And I also urge you to have a look at the France young immigrants and how great-full they are to be in Europe.

      Those who really involved in this scam should realise that they will destabilise Europe and that they are a threat to the minorities already living in Europe.
      Thanks to these NGOs the so-called “nationalist” parties are thriving. Have a look at Geert Wilders in the Netherlands. He rejects the whole juridical system. He can do that because he is now the leading party in the Netherlands. In France Le Pen has a high probability of becoming the next president.
      Please understand that the complete multicultural fallacy will come crashing down and that person will suffer. After all, this is Europe.

      Read history and the theory of warfare. See what happened in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia, Jasenovac and Srebrenica. Racial tensions always end bad, for God sake why do they give history at school, if you people do not want to learn from it?
      There is no racial integration in Europe nor the USA nor any other country. Have a close look at the European leadership the so-called left parties, all white!
      This will end in bloodshed in the streets of Europe! And these organisations are fully complicit.
      Africa is a big problem with a population that quadrupled in 50 years, and still, birth control is taboo.
      Europe Faces Unprecedented Demographic Pressure
      If you write on behave of MOAS, please quit this madness and use your energy and money for birth-control programs in Africa!!

      Your ad hominen sarcasm and deliberate mis-representation fool no-one. Clearly the various NGO vessels are entering Libyan waters not to “rescue ” refugees but to pick-up then tranship/deck transfer to Italian naval/coastguard vessels which GUARANTEES onward travel to Italy. This makes these NGOs the penultimate link in a people-trafficking racket involving criminal gangs in lawless Libya (thanks NATO for destroying the Libyan state ! ) and the mafias of southern Italy. In just three years over 500 000 Africans ( mostly Nigerians, Guineans, Eritreans ) have been transported to Italy where they will stay – forever. The EU countries have closed their borders with northern Italy, so Italy alone has to bear the costs (5 billion Euro last year) for everything. Meanwhile the criminal families running Albania and Montenegro are using their drug/arms/women routes across they Adriatic to fast-ferry more illegal migrants (mix of Syrian/Afghani/Sri Lankan/Bangladeshi) across to the Puglia shores to add to the problem. It is NOT humanitarian to transfer millions from sub-Saharan states and dump them in Italy.

  • Point 4 is also wrong. They operate in Libyan territorial waters and plan their operation in advance. This makes it technically not a rescue operation and it makes it illegal. We know the European Parliament creates a juridical waver. There will be a day of reckoning by the people of Europe. We also got the assurance that Mafia from Sicilian is involved.

    • Gitte Jensen says:

      All correct Gefira Board. Italy has lost control of its own borders, in desperation now funding a Libyan coastguard supposed to stop these unpowered dinghies and barges before these enter international waters. Problem is the Libyan gangs just tow these vessels a few kms out, then cut them adrift, send distress signal with co-ordinates ( sometimes hours in advance) and head back knowing the NGO will pick them up, then transfer them onto Italian vessels for guaranteed onward passage . Australia had a similar problem with organized people trafficking a few years ago (minus the NGO intervention ) and have dealt with it very successfully as follows :

      1. Vessels carrying illegal migrant cargoes are intercepted by the Australian Navy and are turned back or where safe to do so towed back to port of origin (usually Indonesia).
      2. Where smugglers sabotage or scupper their vessel to prevent 1. the crew are arrested and their human cargo sent to remote offshore islands OUTSIDE Australias migration zone for processing.
      3. After processing, whether found to be genuine bona fide refugee or not (mostly not), no-one is given right of entry into Australia. They are given the option of returning to their own country , re-settlement in a third country ( Cambodia) or UNRWA camp in Indonesia, or remain in the camps.
      4. The number assessed as genuine refugees are added to the quotas offered by Australia to those existing genuine refugees on waiting lists in UNRWA camps in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, and Kenya (Somalis)

      As a result of this sensible and humanitarian policy the boats have stopped completely and NO lives have been lost at sea in 2016 from people smuggling ventures. In contrast at least 5 000 have drowned by engaing people traffickers, aided and encouraged by short-sighted, if not criminal NGO activities. Time to expose this scandal and ask why Italy does not adopt the Australian model ?

  • All these stupid leftwing politicians and NGO’s are responsible for this kind of invasion!
    95% of these so-called refugees are looking for the best Europe can give.

  • Rescuing refugees pros and cons, the pros is that , saving lives and can be higher beneficial for charities and those involved, the cons will destroying the Europeans identify also may low the economy and rescuing can encouraging many others trying to coming because their opportunities and their chance to reach EU with support give them clear chance to do again. EU in 5 years time will end up because of that uncontrollable smugglers charities involved. Dalai Lama made so wise comment some days ago regarding the quantity of refugees coming in and how Europe handled that…he said EU in years later becomes populated by Africans and Muslim if they don’t go home…the threat here will be much serious that may affect not only Christianity but also some other minority groups like gays or lesbians…but Dalai Lama not only one made that such comments regarding refugees , the Palestine leader also said France in 10 years time will be Muslim country …if EU not solved the refugee crisis that can be the true nature of the comments….
