LCG calls Aquarius and says it should stay 80 NM from the shore, otherwise they could face legal action in Tripoli. Patrol boat Al Khifa says to Aquarius “you made a big problem, we are not able to take the people onboard because you started taking people. So we will leave the situation to you. You will then immediately go away from the Libyan coast at 94NM, you have disrupted operations in this area, you are not welcome here”.
