1. Piracy off the Somali coast poses immediate and future challenge, causing difficulties, primarily for Somali population.
2. At the global scale, Piracy has affected ship routings, increased insurance premiums and triggered an expensive, marine-based response through flotilla provided from numerous nations.
3. Although Somalia has a transitional Gov't in place, it does not exercise effective control over the entirety of the national territory.
For how long can we sustain these operations?
The legal issues remain a big challenge to us.
Piracy conducted into deep sea gives credence to allegation that intelligence is passed on to pirates from external sources.
Thank you for your attention.
