Heading Ashore

The Dutch navy will be allowed to fight pirates on Somali territory.

A majority in Dutch parliament agreed with Defence Minister, Hans Hillen, that the anti-piracy effort has to be upgraded.

Minister Hillen guarantees, however, that the Dutch won’t be involved in the fight against terrorism that is currently being fought in Somalia. The Dutch navy will use the existing UN mandate to perform pre-emptive strikes on pirates ashore.
