When countries break the law

 In 2021, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), 955 people have already died trying to reach Europe by sea. NGOs believe these figures are underestimated.

According to the 1974 International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), coastal states have a legal obligation to organise and assist searches in the event of a distress signal. 

They are ignoring that obligation.
