ROME, AUG 13 – The ResQ People ship – of the NGO ‘ResQ – People saving people’, whose honorary president is the former public prosecutor of the Mani Pulite pool Gherardo Colombo – has just rescued about 85 people in the Libyan sar zone who were on a small wooden boat. The crew, ResQ People informs, is hard at work assisting the shipwrecked on board. “The disappearance of Gino Strada coincides with the first rescue of 85 people which took place today. As ResQ we dedicate these 85 human lives to him, which we will take to a safe place ”, says Luciano Scalettari, president of ResQ. “Gino – he continues – was a great figure in the field of humanitarian aid and made many things change thanks to Emergency and everything he did. He has always concretely maintained that there is no human being preferred to another, and he proved it with facts. He was a great pacifist, he always treated the wounded and condemned wars. We at ResQ have the honor of having among us his daughter Cecilia Strada, who at this moment cannot be there next to him because she is in the middle of the sea saving people as her father and mother have always done “. Yesterday the NGO informed that it had witnessed an interception by the Libyan coast guard in the Maltese sar area of 3 wooden boats carrying about 40 people. (HANDLE).
