A possible diplomatic spat has erupted between European powers Germany and Italy after the Italian Interior Minister, and the country’s most popular politician Mr Matteo Salvini, decided to sue the captain of a German ship that has been rescuing African migrants at sea and dropping them off in Italy.

Ms Pia Kemp risks 20 years inprisonment in Italy for her actions.

The 35-year-old Bonn native has been under investigation in Italy since her ship, the Iuventa, was impounded in the summer of 2017, and the government has moved to ban her from sailing around the Italian coast.

According to German public broadcaster WDR, through the work on that ship and the Sea-Watch 3, Klemp has personally assisted in the rescue of more than 1,000 people at risk of drowning in unsafe dinghies as they attempted to cross to Europe in search of a better life.
