UN Security Council considers plans for specialised Somali courts to try pirates

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.
