The 'Sea-Watch 3' on Dec 5 has changed flag from Dutch to German. The Sea-Watch organization accused the Dutch authorities of not fulfilling their role as a nation supporting their mission, adding that the Dutch "deliberately created a situation that would make further rescue missions impossible." According to the NGO, a ship's flag country "is responsible for allowing ships to dock in a safe harbor as soon as possible after a rescue operation. However, whenever the 'Sea-Watch 3' appealed to its flag nation, the Netherlands repeatedly failed to fulfill its responsibilities. The statement went further, saying that the Netherlands had intentionally tried to prevent the rescue of dying people. Since its inception, Sea-Watch has rescued hundreds of drowning migrants between the coasts of northern Africa and Europe. Most notably it earned the ire of Italy's former interior minister, the far-right League party leader Matteo Salvini.
