Isn’t This What’s Supposed To Happen To Pirates?

Via Ace comes this tale of Russian Justice sure to chill the heart of Jack Sparrow

BOSASSO — A pirate spokesman, who wished to remain anonymous, contacted Somalilandpress today said at least ten of his men were executed by the Russian navy after the troopers stormed MV Moscow University.

“The Russians commandos stormed the ship before sunrise, starting a firefight with our men, onboard they injured three of them and one was killed,” he said.

He dismissed the Russian navy statement that the men were released because of “the absence of a legal base to carry out prosecution procedures against pirates”.

“The Russians never released the young men instead they shot them point-blank range then loaded their lifeless bodies back on the boat,” he added.

Thus ending their pirating careers.

  1. And it was totally within the rules.
    I bet that no Russian ships get hijacked ever again by these idiots.

    Winston – not those ten idiots, anyway. Whether the others take the hint remains to be seen.

    Deja vu:

    “The Jerusalem Post said the Soviet secret police last year secured the release of three kidnaped Soviet diplomats in Beirut by castrating a relative of a radical Lebanese Shia Muslim leader, sending him the severed organs and then shooting the relative in the head.”

    You put yourself outside of the protections of International Law and things can happen.

    Message received? Any more Russkie ships get hijacked?

  6. major dad says:

    The Russkies always play hardball no pun intended. That’s how they handle terrorists as well. Lesson to be learned, better to be feared than loved.

    LOL. The legal base is, you catch them in the act of piracy, you execute them on the spot. Has been, for centuries.
