The people smugglers coordinate with the NGOs (who are also in the “people smuggling” business now). They arrange a GPS rendezvous point at sea and the NGO ship swoops in to collect “refugees” from the smugglers’ boats and ferry them to Europe.
Merkel & co. have contributed to the continuation and expansion of this nightmare by failing to blockade against arrivals and send people back. Once word spread that “we are guests of Mrs. Merkel” the numbers soared. As intended.
This ship is from Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), aka “Doctors Without Borders” — a French-based NGO now devoted to exploiting the refugee crisis to force thousands/millions of migrants into Europe.
Several big NGOs like this one are operating ships to collect swarms of people from the smugglers and bring them to Europe. The NGOs in effect have become a big part of the smuggling operation.
