Death Threat

The threat of a Singaporean death penalty is keeping suspected pirates on board the Finnish naval vessel “Pohjanmaa”.

Paddy O’Kennedy, a spokesman for EUNAVFOR reports that discussions with Singapore on the extradition of the suspects are under way.

However it is thought that extradition will take place only if the country asserts that the suspected pirates would not be facing the death penalty or another punishment that would violate human rights when they appear before a Singaporean court.
