In Nairobi Kenya, Kenya will once again start accepting and prosecuting suspected Somali Pirates, a top Kenya Official said Wednsday. "The higher authorities of Kenya will take the cases of the Somali pirates arrested by the international warships and could decline to prosectute the pirates if they don't reach the criteria" said Foreign Minister Moses Wetangula. Wetangula spoke during a news conference after a meeting with the European Union's foreign affairs and security cheif, Catherine Ashton. Who is visiting the Region of Kenya to help press prosecutions on the Somali Pirates. Earlier in the year of 2010, Kenya had stopped persecuting Somali Pirates.
That decision left about 2 dozen Somali Pirates scooped up by the U.S and European warships and sitting in legal limbo seas. Eleven of the Somalia suspects were accused of attacking two warships and sent to the U.S and charged with privacy in the federal court of Virginia. In 2008, Kenya signed agreements with Western Countries including the U.S to prosecute Somali warships. Last month Wetangula said that Kenya was unwilling to sign the papers to keep on prosecuting Somali pirates because some countries that agreed to give Kenya financial support had not done what they promised.
