Informed that thefibre glass boat is supposed to be rescued by Frontex, Aquarius informs the MTRCC that it would like to request from Frontex to bring the 141 survivors currently onboard Aquarius to a place of safety.

Email from Aquarius to MTRCC

“Dear Sir,

As you are aware Aquarius currently has 141 survivors on board. I would like to request from Frontex if they would have the possibility to bring these people on board their vessel and to a place of safety ? They are mostly Eritrean and Somali and 67 of them are unaccompanied minors. Would it be possible for you to contact them for me or have them contact me?
Thank you

Best Regards”
