German Frontex interveen after pushback attempt June 4th.

A boat carrying 32 people was in distress outside Lesvos north east this morning. Their engine had been removed by Greek coast guard, they also used their boat to make waves, so that the refugee boat would drift towards Turkey. They where left helpless in the sea, drifting.

People onboard jumped in the sea, and tried to swim the boat towards Lesvos. After hours in the sea German FRONTEX came to their rescue, and towed the boat in to a Palios, Lesvos north east this afternoon. Greek coast guard was in the area the whole time, watching, but refused to assist people in distress, in direct violation of international maritime law.

When will this madness end..
