Migrants disembarked at Haywharf back in 7th July and 4th August, have departed for France earlier today.

Those brought to Malta by Armed Forces of Malta patrol vessels, had originally been rescued by the migrant rescue vessel ‘Alan Kurdi’, operated by See Eye.

The relocation is understood to have been coordinated by French officials through the French Embassy in Malta and the International Organisation for Migration.

The relocation is understood to have been carried out as an ad-hoc agreement reached between the European Commission, Malta, France and fellow European Member States.
