Doom Scenarios

The IMO has outlined four “nightmare scenarios” unless tougher action was taken against Somali pirates.

The four doom laden IMO prophesies are that:

  • Crews could refuse to cross the Indian Ocean,
  • Crude oil shipments could be diverted,
  • There could be a huge oil spill or
  • A¬†large cruise ship could be seized.

Mr Mitropoulos also voiced concern that pirates are now no longer weather dependent, and can strike all year round.
