Watch: Lifeline migrants leave Malta to Portugal

The group of immigrants who came to Malta aboard MV Lifeline’s ship left to Portugal.

In a press release, the government said this was done through a solidarity agreement reached when the ship entered Maltese ports on the 27th of June.

Among those leaving were a mother and a baby.  Immigration authorities from Portugal evaluated the group.

Speaker for the International Organisation for Migration in Malta, Giovanni Bersan, praised the collaboration made with the Maltese Government.

Last week another group of imigrants left to the Netherlands.

Belgium, Ireland, Italy and Norway said they will be helping too.

51 immigrants who arrived to Malta abord the same ship Lifeline have already left to France.

Another group of immigrants came to Malta aboard Lifeline went to Luxenburg.
