INDONESIA: #Police on Thursday detained one of the crew of a packed speedboat that crashed off an Indonesian island a day earlier, carrying illegal workers as a search-and-rescue team scoured the waters for dozens of missing passengers – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Nov.02: Indonesia detains one crewman of crashed boat, dozens still missing

The accident happened as the boat, carrying numerous illegal Indonesian workers, was heading for Indonesia’s island of Batam, having departed from Malaysia’s southern state of Johor.

The boat, with 98 workers and three crew on board, struck a reef in strong winds and big waves. Eighteen people were #killed and 39 were pulled from the waters alive.

A 280-strong team resumed the evacuation effort early on Thursday, after the search for the other 44 was halted the previous evening, said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for the Indonesian national disaster mitigation agency.

Police were looking for the captain of the ship, who had fled, and the fate of the third crew member was unknown, said Airlangga, a #police spokesman for the Riau Islands, which include Batam.

The crew is being detained and we are chasing the captain as well, because they are responsible for this incident,” Airlangga, who goes by one name, like many Indonesians, said by telephone.

“They violated the shipping law, and they were also transporting people illegally.”

ITALY: Navy has rescued a thousand #migrants in a single day in the Mediterranean, with three different ships – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – July.19: The Italian Navy Rescued 1,000 Migrants In A Single Day

Though not unprecedented rescues of hundreds of people in a day are commonplace in the waters south of Sicily this illustrates how much migrant routes are switching from the eastern pathway through Greece to the more dangerous, but less patrolled, southern corridor through Libya and Italy.

A crackdown by the European Union on the overland route via Eastern Europe, which #migrants take after a quick sea crossing of just a few miles from Turkey to Greek islands just off the Turkish coast, has pushed people to try getting into Europe from North Africa instead. That sea crossing is far longer, at 200 miles (350 km) at its shortest, through open waters with powerful currents.

The Italian Navy said on its Twitter feed on Tuesday that it had carried out three different rescues. First, the frigate Grecale rescued 120 people from a rubber dinghy; then another frigate, the Margottini, saved 450 people from four other dinghies; and lastly the patrol vessel Borsini rescued 400 people from a boat and around 120 from a dinghy.

The Navy also published on its YouTube channel footage of one of the rescues, showing people being transferred aboard a ship.

According to data from the Italian Interior Ministry reported by news agency ANSA, in the first three months of the year or 58 percent more migrants landed on Italian coasts, or were rescued by the Navy or Coast Guard and then taken ashore, than in the same period of 2015. Arrivals are far more frequent in the summer, when the calmer, warmer Mediterranean is often far easier to cross than in winter.

A helicopter carrying officers and doctors was dispatched to Ezadeen, a Sierra Leone-flagged ship to tend to the passengers as the cargo ship was set on auto-pilot.

The renege vessel was spotted by a coast guard plane shortly after nightfall.

The latest incident comes just two days after Italian sailors intercepted a Moldovan-flagged freighter carrying more than 700 migrants, mostly from Syria.

A merchant marine ministry official said the distress call had come from one of the passengers on board the ship.

The ship is believed to be carrying about 400-600 migrants.

BANGLADESH: ‘ NAVY INTERCEPTS SHIP CARRYING MIGRANTS BY PEOPLE SMUGGLERS ‘

#AceWorldNews – BANGLADESH(Dhaka) – Nov.18 – Bangladeshi Navy on Monday intercepted a ship in the Bay of Bengal carrying hundreds of migrants being taken to Malaysia by people-smugglers, officers said.

Most of the would-be migrants were from Bangladesh, but some were thought to be from Myanmar, an officer told AFP on condition of anonymity.

“There are 500-600 people in the boat,” the officer said.

“Some 90 percent of those aboard the boat are Bangladeshis and the rest are from Myanmar.

The crew are all from Myanmar.”

Thousands of poor Bangladeshi and ethnic Rohingya refugees from Myanmar try to migrate to Malaysia every year on a perilous and sometimes fatal 3,200-kilometer journey.

Rights groups say thousands have perished along the way, while thousands more have fallen into the hands of people-traffickers.

Bangladesh’s coast guard and border forces have launched crackdowns on economic migrants, confiscating their ships and arresting a number of human traffickers.

Police said the boat was “heading to Malaysia illegally” and would be taken into shore.

#Morocco : ” Seven Dead and One Thousand Rescued in Attempts to Swim to Europe by Migrant’s trying to reach Ceuta”

#AceWorldNews says seven people have drowned as part of a collective of 200 migrants trying to swim from Morocco’s mainland to Ceuta, a Spanish enclave attached to Morocco’s northern coast, according to the Spanish daily, El Pais.

Potential migrants make frequent attempts to cross the border separating the two, often risking their lives to access the territory which lies just 15 km over the sea from Spain.

Meanwhile, over 1,000 people were rescued from rafts near the Italian island of Lampedusa by Italy’s navy. The country is another major migrant point of entry into Europe and over 200 died in October last year alone, only a kilometre from the coast.

Sea crossings tripled last year, thought to be prompted by regional instability, including civil war in Syria.

UK: `New Migrant Job-seekers from the European Economic Area (EEA)’ will no longer be able to get`Housing Benefit’ from April 2014″

#AceNewsServices says Press Release New Migrant Job-seekers from the European Economic Area (EEA)' will no longer be able to get Housing Benefit‘ from April 2014.

placeholder

New migrant job-seekers from the European Economic Area (EEA) will no longer be able to get Housing Benefit (HB) from April, Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith announced on (20 January 2014).

The government is determined to cap welfare and reduce immigration as part of Britain’s long-term economic plan and ministers want to make sure the system is fair for hard-working taxpayers.

From the start of April, new EEA job-seekers will no longer be able to access Housing Benefit if they are claiming income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA).

This builds on new rules introduced in January which mean EEA migrants cannot claim income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance until they have been in the country for three months.

Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith said:

As part of the government’s long-term economic plan we have taken action to make sure our economy delivers for people who want to work hard and play by the rules.

These reforms will ensure we have a fair system – one which provides support for genuine workers and job-seekers, but does not allow people to come to our country and take advantage of our benefits system.

The British public are rightly concerned that migrants should contribute to this country, and not be drawn here by the attractiveness of our benefits system.

The Housing Benefit changes do not affect UK and Irish Republic nationals, or EEA migrants genuinely self-employed or in a job. EEA nationals who have worked in the UK, and are subsequently made redundant and claim JSA, will not be affected by this measure.

As part of the government’s long-term economic plan to get people off benefits and into work, a series of reforms have been put in place to make sure migrants wanting to come to this country do everything they can to find a job and stay in work.

Other measures recently introduced include:

From 1 January all EEA job-seekers have to wait for 3 months before they can get income-based JSA. This will make sure that only people who have a clear commitment to the UK and plan to contribute to the economy have access to our welfare system.

After 3 months, job-seekers will also have to take a stronger, more robust Habitual Residence Test if they want to claim income-based JSA.

If they pass the Habitual Residence Test, EEA job-seekers will then only be able to get JSA for 6 months. After 6 months, only those who have a job offer or compelling evidence that they have a genuine chance of finding work will be able to continue claiming.

This week, the government will set out how reforms to welfare and immigration are helping to build a stronger, more competitive, economy that will secure a better future for Britain. Ministers are determined to fix the welfare system to make sure more people can get into work and benefit from the security that a job brings.

Calls For Action To Protect Human Rights – After Lampedusa Tradegy

Lampedusa

AFTER LATEST LAMPEDUSA TRAGEDY, BAN CALLS FOR ACTION TO PROTECT HUMAN RIGHTS OF MIGRANTS
Following reports of a second ship capsizing off the coast of the Italian island of Lampedusa, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called on the international community to protect the rights of migrants and take action to prevent such tragic incidents.

“The Secretary-General is deeply saddened to hear reports of the loss of lives as another boat carrying migrants capsized yesterday off the coast of Italy, only a few days after the tragic incident near Lampedusa which had already claimed more than 300 lives,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said in a <“http://www.un.org/sg/statements/?nid=7196“>statement.

According to media reports, at least 27 people died and 221 were saved on Friday after their boat capsized near Lampedusa.

The incident occurred just over a week after more than 300 migrants, mostly Ethiopian, lost their lives when their boat caught fire half a mile from the coast, leading the vessel to capsize in the same area.

“The Secretary-General calls on the international community to take action to prevent such tragedies in the future, including measures that address their root causes and that places the vulnerability and human rights of migrants at the centre of the response,” the statement said.
