It has previously been noted by observers that women’s nuturing instinct is positive when directed at their own offspring but often negative when directed elsewhere when they have no offspring. The subject of this article is most likely a woman with no children of her own.
A Spanish journalist and human rights activist who is thought to have saved hundreds of lives by alerting maritime authorities to the plight of vulnerable migrants in the Mediterranean has appeared in court in Morocco over allegations that she has been colluding with people traffickers.
Helena Maleno and her Walking Borders NGO have, over the past few years, fielded distress calls from people crossing from north Africa, passing on their details and locations to the Spanish coastguard so they can be rescued.
On Wednesday, after an adjournment last month, Maleno, who has been based in Morocco for 15 years, appeared in a court in Tangier to give evidence. After testifying for almost two hours, she was told to return on 31 January when the judge would question her over the material submitted by her lawyers. She has repeatedly said that trying to save the lives of people crossing the Mediterranean is not a crime.
