I found it kind of weird that they were really avoiding talking about the ship or organization or what they were doing, and just throwing out buzzword references to the Italian far right, so I looked into it a bit.

The ship was the Iuventa, owned and operated by Jugend Rettet a Berlin based NGO, they have not signed the Italian government's code of conduct for operating NGOs and they have been criticised by the EU border agencies as early as 2015 for cooperation with human traffickers and refusing to cooperate with officials.
The boat was seized 2 years ago after a year of criminal investigation, with video evidence of migrants being transferred from Libyan ships which would then return to the African shore to pick up more ferry loads. Which I think she actually admits to in that article.

"Pictures allegedly show human traffickers ‘escorting’ vessels packed with asylum seekers before they are transferred to aid boats. Pia has said that these pictures were taken off the coast of Malta, not Italy, and said she always followed international law while captaining the Iuventa vessel. Speaking to Swiss paper Basler Zeitung, she added: ‘We have only followed international law, especially the law of the sea, where the highest priority is to save people from distress."

Not to support Europe's anti immigration swerve, not to speak ill of attempting to save a human life but honestly this does seem like a trafficking operation to me. If it comes out in the trials that they're being paid for this by their Libyan ferry partners then throw the fucking book at them Imo.
