Sarah Mardini and Seán Binder / Greece


In Greece, you can go to jail for saving lives. It happened to rescue workers Sarah Mardini, 24, and Seán Binder, 25, because they volunteered for a sea search and rescue organization 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 organization.
