I urge you to drop all charges against the El Hiblu 3 and close the case.
These youths, two of whom were just 15 and 16 years old at the time of the alleged incident, could be jailed for life for opposing their return to suffering and torture in Libya. Yet there is little to no evidence to support the serious charges against them.
The youths had acted asinterpreters on the El Hiblu, an oil transporter, to help preserve their lives and those of their fellow passengers after they were rescued at sea.
They have been through grave hardship and trauma. Deliver justice: drop the charges, close the case.
