    Very selfish. Parents should know to get the kids registered. Don't they realise that they are putting others at risk let alone themselves

    Please tell the military leader to show a bit more care for the infants when they are in quarantine. They are little children after all.

    And you believe they will give the correct information

    Very bad arrangement by the government Tuesday, 24 March 2020 10:45 AM

    Immigration officers were sleeping at the time of arrival or government allowed them to enter the country by ship or boat? If they really passed thru the immigration point, now police need to search them. Something fishy

    All have passports.Hmm. So boats also check passports when departing? If the children were born in Italy, the embassy would have issued them. Would have checked documentation of residence. Very fishy!

    why some faces covered up ?

    THIS IS MORE THAN THE CORONA ! - needs investigation Tuesday, 24 March 2020 12:43 PM

    The analysis shows 7 Infants, 2 Children , 2 Males and 1 female.( that is the 12 who have come) One male 81 years old, Other male 28 years old AND FOR ALL THE INFANTS ! there is only 1 (repeat ONE) Female 45 years old ! HOW COME ! needs more than investigation than the Corona investigation !

    There is something rotten in the state of Denmark ! Tuesday, 24 March 2020 12:50 PM

    "help to locate a group" - SOME group - comprising two assorted males, one middle age Female and 9 children of whom 7 are INFANTS ! -something fishy.

    QUESTION MORE Tuesday, 24 March 2020 01:01 PM

    Can immigration inform (a) date of issue of the passports for the three adults (b) date and place of issue of the infant's passports and the names of the parents entered, Some thing smells fishy and whether the immigration officer was involved to allow them entry (without further questions and clarifications need be investigated)
