Repatriate arrested pirates – Maritime lawyer

A Maritime lawyer Dr. Kofi Mbiah is advising Ghanaian officials to repatriate the recently-arrested Nigerian pirates to their country for trial.

“It will be my view that they are repatriated back to Nigeria for them to be dealt with under the laws of Nigeria. Once you try them and then you put them in your prisons, remember that you are responsible for feeding them, for their upkeep and all that…” he told Starr News.

The eight pirates were arrested by the Ghana Navy for hijacking an oil vessel.

The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) is investigating the case.
