PIRACY IN THE GULF OF ADEN: ISN’T IT TIME ALREADY FOR THE WARSHIPS TO HEAD HOME?



Date : 05-06-2017

On 13 March pirates hijacked an oil tanker, named Aris 13, off the Somali coast, when the tanker was carrying fuel from Djibouti to Mogadishu. It is interesting, however, to note that this was the first successful hijacking of a commercial ship by Somali pirates since 2012. Even more interesting is the fact that, in less than three days, the pirates released the 08 men Sri Lankan crew and the ship without ransom.
