This is Miguel Roldan. He is a Spanish firefighter who says he helped save thousands of lives from drowning in the Mediterranean. But Italy is accusing him of aiding illegal immigration and working with human traffickers. He faces up to 20 years in prison if he is convicted.
Premeditated legal charges, smears and accusations may have forced Médecins Sans Frontières and SOS MEDITERRANEE to cease their search and rescue operations, but they will not stop NGOs trying to save lives in the Mediterranean.
