Piracy – Seychelles to Prosecute Suspects

May 17, 2012

EU Naval Force welcomes decision by Seychelles Government to bring suspect Somali pirates before court

The Republic of the Seychelles agreed to accept for prosecution 11 suspect pirates who were captured by EU Naval Force (EU NAVFOR) frigate HNLMS Van Amstel recently.

The 11 suspect pirates had taken control of an Iranian dhow with 17 innocent Iranian fishermen onboard at the beginning of May and it is thought the dhow was probably related to an unsuccessful attack against  the merchant ship MV Super Lady. 
The suspects are expected to be handed over to the Seychelles authorities in the coming days.
