LCG calls Aquarius and threatens Aquarius. Patrol Boat al Khifa asks if Aquarius would like to visit Tripoli: “good morning, did you speak to ???, have you been in Tripoli town before? What do you think if you go to Tripoli there? Staying there one or two weeks with us? How would you like to go to Tripoli?”.

Aquarius replies it would like to solve this problem now, in a safe manner for everybody. Aquarius further asks Patrol boat Al Khifa for instructions as to what to do. LCG asks Aquarius to go 15 NM away from the distress scene. Aquarius requests to be allowed to bring sick women and children who are on the RHIB onto Aquarius.
