On 15 July, the Italian Chamber of Deputies voted to renew Italy’s funding to train the Libyan coast guard. On the same day, Amnesty International published a report ‘’No one will look for you’: Forcibly returned from sea to abusive detention in Libya’, documenting how migrants that are intercepted while crossing the Mediterranean Sea and returned to detention centres in Libya suffer from continued and unabated human rights violations.
