Even Though it has created problems for Maersk Line, that the shipping company’s container ship Alexander Maersk picked up 113 migrants in the Mediterranean Sea on the night to Friday, and did not get permission to free them before four days later, the company will not hesitate to pick up people in need in the future.

"At any time we will provide all the support and help needed for people in need of it. We do not waste time speculating if we end up in a similar situation. We will deal with it at that time if it should happen, "says Palle Laursen, Technical Director of Maersk Line, according to Berlingske Business on Tuesday morning to Ritzau.

"To the extent that someone is in danger at sea, we will take action. There is no doubt about that, "says Palle Laursen.

A group of five migrants, which included a pregnant woman, were back on land on the day after they were taken onboard Alexander Maersk, while the majority that consisted of 108 migrants were dropped off at Pozzallo Harbor between Monday and Tuesday.

Alexander Maersk, which sails a set route in the Mediterranean Sea for Maersk Line, has returned to its course and is currently o nits way to Malta.
