Council of Europe Alarmed by Italy's Migrant Policy

Council of Europe Alarmed by Italy's Migrant Policy

Thursday, 07 February 2019 10:39 AM EST

ROME (AP) — The Council of Europe's human rights commissioner says she is "deeply concerned" about Italy's treatment of migrants at home and at sea and is seeking clarification from the government about a recent law and move to empty big migrant welcome centers.

Commissioner Dunja Mijatovic told Premier Giuseppe Conte in a letter released Thursday that she regretted the "apparent hastiness" with which one center was emptied. She also cited "disconcerting reports" that some migrants deserving of protections might be made homeless by a new law restricting their benefits.

Mijatovic also took aim at Italy's refusal to let aid group rescue ships dock and its "relinquishing responsibility" of rescues to Libya. She wrote: "I urge you to ensure that the human rights of persons rescued at sea are never put at risk."
