UN Security Council considers plans for specialised Somali courts to try pirates
April 13, 2011Posted by on
Recognizing the need for further steps to boost anti-piracy efforts, the Security Council today decided to urgently consider the establishment of specialized Somali courts to try suspected pirates both in the Somalia and in the region.
The Council also urged both State and non-State actors affected by piracy, most notably the international shipping community, to provide support for a host of judicial- and detention-related projects through the trust fund set up for that purpose.
In its unanimously adopted resolution, the 15-member Council stressed the need for â€œa comprehensive response to tackle piracy and its underlying causes by the international community,â€ as it outlined a wide array of measures to more effectively counter the scourge of piracy.
These include calling on States to cooperate on the issue of hostage-taking; encouraging States and regional organizations to assist Somalia in strengthening its coastguard capacity; urging all States, including those in the region, to criminalize piracy under their domestic laws; and underlining the need to investigate and prosecute those who illicitly finance, plan, organize, or unlawfully profit from pirate attacks off the Somali coast.
