Palermo, June 19 - A delegation of Northern League
parliamentarians on Wednesday travelled to the southern Italian
island of Lampedusa for a surprise inspection of an immigrant
holding centre.
''After the many landings of illegal immigrants yesterday
and this morning we want to check the situation'', said deputy
House whip Matteo Bragantini, who will be visiting the centre
with another four MPs with the Northern League, a conservative
party which often adopts extreme stances on migration issues.
''According to the latest press reports, there are allegedly
over 1,000 people at the holding centre which is made to
accommodate no more than 300''.
The Lampedusa centre was holding 1,150 people on Wednesday
after another 97 immigrants arrived during the morning.
Hundreds of immigrants in the past few days have been
rescued or landed along Lampedusa's coast as warm weather has
brought calmer seas.
Reports on Wednesday said 200 immigrants who arrived in
Lampedusa in recent days will be flown from the southern island
to a centre in Cagliari, Sardinia.
