Deputy FM affirms gov’t’s keenness to succeed #UNHCR work in #Yemen.

Deputy Foreign Minister, Hussein Al-Ezzi, affirmed on Saturday the government’s keenness to provide all support and facilities contributing to the success of the work of the Office of the
High Commissioner for Refugees (#UNHCR) in #Yemen.

This came during his meeting with Jean-Nicolas, UNHCR Resident Representative to Yemen.
Al-Ezzi @hussinalezzi5 briefed Jean-Nicolas on the
accidental fire that broke out in the sheltering center for illegal immigrants at the
1/3
Immigration and Passports Authority, stressing that some international humanitarian organizations disavow their duties, which reflects negatively on the targeted groups, especially in light of the coalition’s focus on the siege and the systematic destruction of the

Abbiamo appurato che ci vuole mooolta fantasia per essere garantisti sul caso del #respingimentosegreto del 2 luglio 2018.
GARANTISMO FANTASIOSO.

(Thread semi-comico)
Siamo i soliti complottisti: scopriamo un respingimento segreto e subito pensiamo che dietro ci siano i militari italiani. E subito pensiamo che il Governo e le organizzazioni dell'ONU vogliano occultarlo.
Va bene che abbiamo le prove, ma magari c'è un'altra spiegazione...
La nave italiana #CaioDuilio magari passava di là per caso, senza sapere nulla, e si è fermata per una gomma a terra.
"Guarda, dei #migranti!"
"Noo, saranno libici"
"Ok, già che ci siamo, diamo ordini alla #AssoVentinove per riportarli subito a casa, che si perdono la partita".

Quando mai #IOM ha denunciato il respingimento segreto? E a chi?
Vorrei tanto saperlo.
È vorrei anche sapere:
- Se è vero che conosce i nomi delle vittime di Asso Ventotto e Ventinove
- Perché non ha MAI risposto alle pec dei loro avvocati
TUTTE le vittime del #respingimentosegreto hanno testimoniato che al momento dello sbarco, #IOM ha preso i loro nomi.
Ma quando i loro avvocati hanno fatto regolare accesso legale ai documenti di IOM... non hanno ricevuto risposta.
Perchè?

"#IOM e #UNHCR hanno tracciato e conosciuto la storia di queste persone” denuncia Giulia Crescini di ASGI “ma poi hanno coperto e affiancato l'attività delle autorità italiane. Sul molo,durante lo sbarco a Tripoli, IOM non solo era presente, ma addirittura identificò i respinti".

A 16-year-old Somali boy #died yesterday of TB and starvation in the desperate area of Gergarish in #Tripoli & his 14-year-old friend in this video is still there in the derelict building,unable to stand or walk from how #sick,starving & weak he is.Other refugees who found them..
..called @UNHCRLibya, @IOM_Libya,MSF & IRC but say that they were told by most agencies that ‘it’s not their responsibility’ to help the sick boy still alive,that it would be #UNHCR responsibility as they were both registered as asylum seekers,but nothing has happened so far..
..hours later IRC came with some officers to remove the dead body,but refused to take care of the sick boy and take him to hospital.The 14-year-old sick Somali boy doesnt have money for food,taxi fares to the hospital,medication or hospital treatment fees.He needs urgent help..

#Abdulwahab era uno scrittore, come me. Ma nato in Darfur.
Voleva vivere in un posto privo di guerre. Come vorremmo tutti.
Ieri è morto, nel Mediterraneo. Cercando di raggiungere un luogo dove poter scrivere in pace. Dove poter vivere in pace.
Assieme ad #Abdulwahab sono morte altre 44 persone.
5 erano #bambini. Nati sotto una guerra e morti sotto una guerra.

C'è Cris su questa barca. Lo conoscete, ha 16 anni ed è un anno che ve ne racconto la storia. È il mio fratellino e potrebbe morire.
Con lui ci sono altri 20 minori eritrei. Una barca di bambini in fuga dall'orrore.
Diffondete i nostri appelli, vi prego.
#Malta percepisce un mucchio di soldi per gestire una SAR enorme. Ma poi lascia affogare bambini con diritto di asilo in Europa.
Vi sembra normale?
Perché il Governo italiano le ha ceduto la sua zona SAR?
Tempo fa, Cris mi scrisse questo.
Cercavo di non farlo salire su una maledetta barca. Ci riuscii.
Ieri invece ci è salito, senza avvisarmi.
Adesso la possibilità che muoia mi distrugge.

🆘 ~65 persone in pericolo nella SAR maltese! Una barca con ~65 persone in fuga dall’inferno e torture della #Libia ha chiamato #AlarmPhone stamattina. Sono nella zona di #Malta e il motore non funziona. Dicono che una donna sia svenuta e hanno bisogno di soccorso urgente!
Abbiamo allertato le autorità ma #Malta non risponde al telefono. Le persone sono in mare da + di 24 ore. @Armed_Forces_Malta è tuo dovere soccorrerle al più presto e portarle in Europa! Una barca di legno può capovolgersi in ogni momento e i ritardi costano la vita delle persone
Le persone a bordo sono nel panico! Dicono di stare imbarcando acqua. Nella zona le onde raggiungono i 2 metri e c'è forte vento. Il soccorso non deve essere ritardato ma #Malta non sta rispondendo alle chiamate di soccorso.

🆘 ~65 people in distress in Malta SAR! A boat with ~65 people escaping the Libyan hell & torture camps called #AlarmPhone this morning. They are in #Malta Search & Rescue zone & their engine is not working. They said a woman has fainted & they all need urgent rescue! Image
We alerted authorities but #Malta is not answering the phone. The people have been at sea for more than 24 hours. @Armed_Forces_MT it‘s your duty to rescue them as quickly as possible & to bring them to Europe! A wooden boat can capsize at any moment & delays risk people’s lives.
The people on board are panicking! They said that water is entering the boat. In the area waves are up to 2 metres high and there are strong winds. Rescue should not be delayed, but #Malta is still not responding to the distress calls. #DontLetThemDrown #BlackLivesMatter

Per la #giornatamondialedelrifugiato vorrei raccontarvi tante cose.
Ma mi concentro su una: la totale mancanza di #dirittiumani che annichilisce la vita degli umani.
Per farlo, vi racconto storie di casa nostra (Segue)
L'Italia, come denuncio da un pezzo, organizza e svolge deportazioni di umani nei lager della Libia.
Le parole sono importanti.
Deportazioni
Lager
Non uso queste parole a cazzo. Le ho studiate, ho parlato con le vittime, so esattamente cosa scrivo.
(Segue)
Negli ultimi anni c'è stata, in Italia, una vera e propria Resistenza. Attivisti e avvocati hanno detto NO, hanno iniziato a denunciare casi di ignobili deportazioni in Libia in cui i colpevoli sono italiani.

2⃣ Gender-sensitive Country of Origin Information

Member states must...
👉Run a gender analysis of the situation in the country.

Civilians in the #Sahel are increasingly threatened not only by radical armed actors and ethnic self-defence groups but similarly by national armed forces in the name of #counterterrorism. Thread on a few recent publications on #Mali #Niger #Burkina:
1/ This piece underlines recent summary executions and enforced disappearances by Sahelian National security forces in the name of counterterrorism. liberation.fr/planete/2020/0…
2/ As allies of #Barkhane – and trained by #EUTM #EUCAP, Sahelian national security forces thereby contribute to a dynamic that fuels recruitment of radical actors.

THREAD How we want to protect Europe’s external border? @EPPGroup #StandWithGreece 1/7
Speed up the operationalisation of the European Border and Coast Guard. We want 10,000 border police officers by the end of 2020. External border protection is a collective responsibility. 2/7
Send €1 billion in EU funds to help Greece protect the EU border! EU Member States want to cut the budget for border protection. This is a huge mistake. We will not accept any reduction. #MFF 3/7

#Naufragio invisibile?
#AlarmPhone chiede risposte per le famiglie di 91 dispersi. Qui la lettera che abbiamo mandato a RCC #Malta, @guardiacostiera, autorità in #Libya, #Frontex, #UNHCR e #IOM.

@guardiacostiera #AlarmPhone teme che ci sia stato un #naufragio di 91 persone davanti alla costa libica il 9 Febbraio 2020. Abbiamo richiesto informazioni alle autoritá coinvolte in #Libia, #Malta e #Italia e all'agenzia europea di frontiera Frontex - senza nessuna risultato.
@guardiacostiera Il 9 Feb. abbiamo ricevuto una chiamata da una un gommone nero con 91 persone a bordo in pericolo e in fuga da Garabulli. Data la gravitá della situazione abbiamo subito avvertito le autoritá, inclusa la cosiddetta GC Libica, RCC Malta e MRCC Italiana tra le 04.09 e le 04.24.

An Invisible Shipwreck?

#AlarmPhone demands answers for the families of 91 missing people. Here the email we sent to RCC #Malta, MRCC #Italy, authorities in #Libya, #Frontex, as well as #UNHCR and #IOM.
alarmphone.org/en/2020/02/19/…
Have 91 people gone missing without a trace?
#AlarmPhone fears a mass shipwreck occurred off the coast of #Libya on 9 February 2020. Requests for information have been made to relevant authorities in #Libya, #Malta, #Italy, and to #EU border agency Frontex – without any reaction.
On Feb 9, we received a call from a black rubber boat with about 91 people in distress who had left from Garabulli. Due to the severity of the situation we alerted all authorities immediately, including the so-called Libyan CG, RCC Malta & MRCC Italy between 4.09-4.24h CET.

A businessman who once was export manager of #IRGC's Kerman Motor in #UAE was falsely represented as a Strategic Studies Analyst by #ManotoTV, an #Iranian opposition TV! Few days ago, he was also interviewed by #BBCPersian! He has not written an article in his life! Who is he?!🤔
How on earth someone attends in a meeting against #Iran's Islamic Regime with #FakhrAvar & Saghar Kasraee in 2012! And just three years later, he is being appointed as export manager of #IRGC's Kerman Motor in #UAE?! It is strange! May be this guy is a double agent?!
Real political & strategic studies analysts such as Mahnaz Shirali, Scientology University Professor might boycott #ManotoTV over inviting people like #FarbodTalaee who pretends to be an analyst (in fact is a businessman who cooperated with #IRGC).

🔴ULTIM'ORA!🔴

Siamo stati chiamati da dei dei #migranti intercettati dalla c.d Guardia Costiera Libica: dicono che alcune delle 65 persone si stanno rifiutando di sbarcare a #Tripoli, e che la c.d. Guardia Costiera ha sparato a un migrante e gettato il corpo in mare. #Libia
Alle 16.52 siamo stati chiamati da un migrante in pericolo su una barca nel porto di #Tripoli: "Ci rifiutiamo di sbarcare. Sappiamo che ci metteranno in prigione. I libici hanno già sparato ad un uomo e hanno gettato il corpo in acqua. Abbiamo paura e abbiamo bisogno di aiuto!"
Alle 16.54 una donna barca ha chiamato dalla barca urlando:"oh mio dio, oh mio dio!". Più persone urlavano in sottofondo. Poi la linea si è interrotta. Alle 17.03, un familiare ci ha informati che c'erano 60 persone sulla barca, di cui donne e bambini, partite dalla Libia giovedì

Migrant shot by so-called Libyan Coastguard

Migrants from a boat that was intercepted at sea called us from #Libya in terror. Some of the 65 people refused to disembark in #Tripoli. A migrant was reportedly shot and thrown into the sea.
At 4.52pm, we were called by someone in distress on a boat in the port of #Tripoli: “We refuse to disembark. We know that they will put us in prison. The Libyans already shot a man and threw his body in the water. We are really scared and we need help!”
At 4.54pm, a woman on the boat called, screaming: “oh my god, oh my god!” More people were screaming in the background. Then the line broke. At 5.03pm a relative called & said there were 60 people on the boat, incl. several women & children & they had departed #Libya on Thursday.

#BREAKING NEWS!!!

@unhcr #UNHCR

According to research by the weekly magazine "@sternde", employees of the @UN refugee agency @Refugees were able to enable #Africans to move to the #West in exchange for #cash payments. Among other things,
the #employees issued false #papers with which the #Africans made it onto the coveted lists of the so-called "resettlement" program.
Several western states, including #Germany, offer refugees who are particularly worthy of #protection a secure future in their country. Above all,
people who are at risk of #disease and #persecution should benefit from this.However, since there are currently only 50,000 to 60,000 such resettlements per year worldwide, the chances of getting one of the places are negligible.

Quoted ASSK admission of #IHL violations; ignoring of #sexual violence; #hate narratives - commander in chief Min Aung Hlaing #Facebook page quoted; discriminatory policies including #citizenship law & NVC process; govt tolerance of hate; failure to investigate prosecute
This last one was the only point disputed by Myanmar - “what state is she talking about?” - military justice system must investigate & prosecute - difficulties admitted by ASSK; how can the #Tatmadaw hold itself accountable when top 6 commanders recommend for prosecution?

#Migration #Libya Do you know that more than 30% (personal estimate) of national @UNHCRLibya partner staff have resigned in the last 2 years? Can you guess why?

- Those are experienced people who held key positions & managed the work since 2014 when #UNHCR wasn't on the ground.
- One has refused a management position just because of the current mess & the sudden redirection of #refugees from GDF/Detention to the CDC.
- Others were burning out due to the moral clashes they face in their daily work that contradicts their idea of #humanitarianPrinciples
Many others including myself 3 years ago, I was a partner staff to #UNHCR in #Libya
I wasn't satisfied with the knowledge gap& the top-down approach from UNHCR to its frontline partners as risk transfer strategy, AND for not providing efficient aid while we had potential+capacity
