Quotes

...Recent reports suggest that West African piracy now affects an increasing number of seafarers: " periods of captivity are much shorter in the Gulf of Guinea region, [but] there are more seafarers subject to close, and often violent, contact with pirates than off Somalia " (Hurlburt et al. 2012: viii)
Hai Soon executive director Michael Low told The Straits Times yesterday: "We're very concerned about our crew's safety. We want our people back as quickly as possible."
"The recent increase in the number of successful hijackings is a cause for concern" said IMB Director Pottengal Mukundan
"The recent increase in the number of successful hijackings is a cause for concern," stated IMB Director, Pottengal Mukundan. "These serious attacks have so far targeted small coastal tankers. We advise these vessels to maintain strict anti-piracy measures in these waters, and to report all attacks and suspicious approaches by small craft."
