Facing jail for saving lives.

In Greece, you can go to jail for saving lives. It happened to rescue workers Sarah Mardini and Seán Binder because they volunteered for a sea search and rescue organisation in Lesvos.

They helped people in danger at sea, many of whom were fleeing abuses in their countries. But they ended up in prison charged with spying, people smuggling and belonging to a criminal organisation.

The first trial began on 10 January. While the indictment of the first trial has been sent back to the prosecutor for basic errors, Seán and Sarah still face charges that include facilitation of irregular entry, membership of a criminal organisation and fraud.

Take Action: Tell Greece to drop all charges against Sarah and Seán.
