On Trial

Five suspected Somali pirates went on trial in a Dutch court on Tuesday for seizing a South African yacht and face up to 15 years in prison if found guilty.

The yacht “Choizil” was taken off the coast of Tanzania on November 7.

One member of Choizil’s crew was rescued by a European Union anti-piracy task force, while two others were taken ashore as hostages and Dutch prosecutors believe they are still being held.
