 Subject:  Need for Commission inquiry and scrutiny regarding the arrest of three migrants on disembarkation from Sea Watch 3

According to Italian press reports of 26 September 2019, police apprehended three of the migrants who arrived in Italy last June on board Sea Watch 3 under the command of Carola Rackete.

It appears that Mohammed Condè, Hameda Ahmed e Mahmoud Ashuia were identified on arrival by other migrants who claimed to have been tortured by them at the Libyan camp of Zawiya.

Subsequent investigations led to the arrest of the three individuals on charges including, sexual violence, torture, murder, kidnapping for ransom and facilitating illegal immigration.

On 3 October 2019, Carole Rackete addressed the European Parliament, arguing that the operation to land the migrants on Sea Watch, in the course of which she hit an Italian coastguard vessel, was right and in accordance with international human rights provisions and the law of the sea.

In view of this:
1. Does the Commission consider that it should investigate the matter, given that the security EU citizens is its top priority?
2. In order to provide its citizens with the protection they deserve, what action will the Commission take to verify the exact identity of the migrants arriving in Europe?
