Somalia: USA Warns Somali Pirates

An attorney of Virginia USA Dana J. Boenta says it is easy for the US government to capture and arrest Somali pirate leaders.

She said they will not be spared from prosecution in a US court and the international law. This comes while sometime before four prosecutors were awarded for verifying the cases of four sea pirates who are in American jails. One of those prosecutors got The John Marshall Awards for Trail of court case. Last week, the award ceremony was held in Washington DC. In a statement Dana J. Boenta said they were awarded because of their investigation on the cases of 14 pirates who were accused of killing 4 US nationals in February 22nd 2011on the sea waters off the Somali Coast.

Some time in the past, a US court also sentenced an interpreter for pirates with 12 years imprisonment.
