German boat captain faces up to 20 years in prison in Italy for RESCUING more than 1,000 migrants in the Mediterranean

Pia Klemp (pictured), a 35-year-old Bonn native, was charged in Sicily with assisting in illegal immigration before her boat was impounded in 2017 (the ship, the Iuventa, is pictured inset).
Supporters hail her as a humanitarian who has been personally responsible for hundreds of rescue missions. But Italian authorities allege that she colluded with smugglers to collect migrants at Mediterranean rendezvous points and stage rescues at sea.
