EU calls for global efforts against piracy

The European Union on Friday called for international efforts to fight rampant piracy along the East Africa coast.Head of the EU delegation in Kenya Eric van der Linden said while the European and other naval forces continue to deter and interrupt piracy at the high seas, countries in the region should also take their responsibility to secure the East African coast. "Prosecution and detention of suspects is one way to contribute and it is a very important part in the strategy to ensure that pirating ships and taking hostage of innocent seamen does not go unpunished," Linden said in Nairobi. Last week, the European naval forces rescued 9 Kenyan fishermen from coastal town of Malindi who had been taken hostage on board the MS Sherry.Dozens of pirates have been sentenced while others have been captured and handed over to Kenyan authorities, a development the EU envoy said is good example of the cooperation between EU and Kenya.
