Libyan JRCC answers Aquarius by email and requests that Aquarius contact another MRCC or its Flag State.

“Dear Sir,

Following your email, where you assess that “none of the Libyan ports are a place of safety for the survivors”, and considered that you don’t want to cooperate with Libyan Coast Guard, as Authority coordinating SAR operation in area.

Considering, also, that we don’t received a distress call, but you took these people, independently without any order from LCG.

Now I kindly suggest to you to contact another MRCC or your Flag State.
