Somali pirates sentenced to 439 years in Spain

By Piracy

Spanish fishing boat was hijacked, that was the reason for this punishment.
On May 3, 2011, the Spanish National Court sentenced 2 Somali pirates to 439 years in prison because they took part in highjacking of a Spanish fishing boat, Alakran, off the coast of Somalia in 2009.
Cabdiweli Cabdullahi and Raageggesey Hassan Aji were captured when they sailed away from the Alakran and were brought to Madrid for trial. Their punishment was arrest from illegally kidnapping 36 of the boat's sailors and 11 years for each count of piracy.
After all, court officials have showed that the maximum time each will serve will be 30 years, not more.
Other countries and organizations, including the US, Germany, the Netherlands, and the UN have also started proceedings against Somali pirates as well in recent years.
