    The repeated refusal of the Interior Minister of Italy to authorise the disembarking of the migrants on board on the Spanish-flagged Open Arms, anchored off the port of Lampedusa after an administrative judge approved its entry into Italy’s territorial waters, has led to a critical situation that, according to the ship’s captain, may make maintaining his authority on board untenable
