Minister for Africa welcomes the transfer of Pirates to Somaliland


Minister for Africa Henry Bellingham said that he "welcomed the successful transfer of 17 convicted Somali pirates from the Seychelles to serve their sentences in prison in Somaliland". "Following the London Conference on Somalia, where Somaliland signed a ground breaking agreement with the Seychelles to transfer convicted pirates to prisons in Somaliland, this prisoner transfer represents an important step forward in ensuring pirates are brought to justice. I praise the cooperation between regional and international partners to make this happen.  I hope to see more transfers of this nature in the future, as they serve to strengthen and secure the cycle of justice that sees pirates being held to account for their actions.”
