As the largest EU Member State, Germany is not only responsible for the inadequate response to a thousandfold death of refugees in the Mediterranean but also for the dangerous action of the EU-trained and financed Libyan coast guard. In the course of several incidents involving the Libyan coast guard in international waters, the lives and well-being of refugees and rescuers have been severely compromised in recent months. Many dead were to be lamented!
