SOMALI PIRATES TO SERVE LONG PRISON TERMS IN TANZANIA NOW
Information was received from Dar es Salaam that as many as 11 Somali pirates, captured in recent months, have had their day in court and were found guilty of charges of piracy and related offenses.
Reportedly all of them were sentenced to long prison terms following which they are expected to be deported back to Somalia.
The most recent case of several of them caught due to the vigilance of villagers living on the ocean shores, who spotted them making land fall and alerted the security organs who carried out the arrest, is still pending in court but also expected to be expeditiously completed, and when – as expected – the culprits are found guilty too of such offenses as illegal entry, piracy, illegal possession of fire arms, they too can expect to join their fellow ocean terrorists in jail where they belong.
Well done Tanzania!
