(ANSA) - PALERMO, 09 JAN - The ship of the NGO Open Arms would have acted on its own initiative, outside the rules on rescue at sea, in an attempt to bring irregular migrants into Italy.

For this reason, Italy would have banned entry into territorial waters right from the start.

It is the defense of the leader of the Lega Matteo Salvini accused of unjustment and refusal of official documents for having denied the landing in Lampedusa to the Spanish ship with 147migrants on board.

The preliminary hearing began today in Palermo.

For the defense, it was not for Italy to indicate a "safe harbor" (POS) to migrants who had boarded the Open Arms ship recovered in Libyan and Maltese waters by a Spanish-flagged ship.

Italy, for the lawyers, was in fact neither a state of first contact nor a coordinating state, having never taken on the coordination of rescue operations.

In addition, minors who arrived near Italian waters had been disembarked.

Another point on which the defense insists is that the Commander of the Open Arms Ship has always had numerous alternatives.

For example, on August 1, after the first transhipment, he was less than three days' sailing from Spain where he could have headed.

Why did you insist on wanting to land in Italy ?, asks the senator's defense. The management of the succession, moreover, would have constituted implementation of the government line shared by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers and the competent ministers, according to what was agreed in the "Contract for the governance of change" signed by the majority forces of the time.

This line provided for the reaching of an agreement for the redistribution of migrants between the Member States of the European Union as an essential phase for the subsequent disembarkation.
