Money Man

Prosecutors claim charges against, “the highest ranking pirate” should be dismissed because he didn’t commit robbery at sea.

The accused is charged with piracy, kidnapping and weapons charges but his role was dealing with ransom demands as opposed to the “physical” act of piracy.

There is a new focus on the “money men” and of following the cash trail as law enforcement agencies look to tackle the root causes and facilitators of piracy, and if this trial collapses there will be concerns as to how the real pirate paymasters can be pursued.
