Pia Klemp, a 35 year old German boat captain, is facing up to 20 years in prison for rescuing refugees who were drowning in the Mediterranean Sea. Klemp is accused by authorities in Italy, for “assisting in illegal immigration,” and if convicted, she will serve her sentence in an Italian prison.



Klemp works with a charity called Sea-Watch that conducts rescue missions for people who are stranded in the Mediterranean Sea. The vast majority of the people who are rescued in these missions are refugees coming from Africa and the Middle East.



Klemp denies the charges against her and insists that her actions to save people from distress were totally legal according to international law:

"We have only followed international law, especially the law of the sea, where the highest priority is to save people from distress.

The rescue is criminalized. We are already paralyzed. And that’s why people are dying on the Mediterranean,” 
Klep told the Swiss paper Basler Zeitung
