Five Somali pirates will be on Dutch court, if Denmark hands over them to Netherland. A Danish support vessel picked them up when they jumped overboard from their pirate ship. A Dutch cargo vessel was attacked by them, but it was foiled.

However, to prosecute the pirates the Dutch court has to use a criminal code which was never used before. The code writes, a captain of a pirate ship can be sentenced to 12 years in prison, while the crewmembers may get 8 years.

It is not clear, the pirates can be sent back to Somalia afer their prison’s time, should they indeed be sentenced.
