. . . has done it again.

They have awarded Somali pirates thousands of Euros in compensation because after the French military delivered them to France, they were held for a further 48 hours before being charged.

The French army captured them after they had taken hostages from a French cruise ship and they were in the custody of the army for some time while being shipped to France. The court decided that was long enough time for questioning them and the extra 48 hours in police custody was excessive. :ugh::ugh::ugh:

How much longer are we to suffer these lunatic Human Rights "Judges"?


The solution is simple. Charge them for their accomodation.

The fFrench are getting soft. The pirates shouldn't have survived the initial encounter with the fFrench military.

Ah but will the French actually take any notice of the ruling?

If the pirates have rights, they must also have responsibilities. So, given that the hostages on the cruise ship had done nothing wrong, they must also have been detained for an excessive time by the pirates. The pirates could hardly argue if the court awarded the same level of compensation to their captives.

What the huggy fluffies don't realize, is this is the sort of thing that puts another nail in the coffin of things like the EU and UN.

If you ever meet these ladies and gentlemen you would realise they are not just from another planet but from another galaxy. Or perhaps universe. A parallel universe at that. To say their thinking is not based on reality is a huge understatement.

Perhaps this time lessons really will be learned,captured pirates will no longer be brought back to Europe no longer brought back any where.

The UN has always been a joke since time immemorial. I still recall the day when fickle murderer Field Marshall Docteur Idi Amin Dada was given a stand up ovation when he first addressed those dickheads - and, according to the headlines, they loved him.

For the ongoing silly antics of the EU comedy show I just need to read the posts of Mr Drapes to stay current.

Ahh, typical for a "loony left", "huggy fluffy", otherwise known as greens voter, socialist, or left wing side of Labor party.

I spend a lot of time at Uni, the place is infested with them:ok:

The Russian method of dealing with pirates is the best.

Use them for target practice.

I guessed that by the quality of your arguments about this stupid decision.
Hope the French just ignore it.


BTW janitors make $140,000 a year in NYC.
That's more than the teachers get.

Isn't Blair's wife a human rights lawyer? Wonder how we got into this situation.

Then you guessed wrong, though I do find the Janitor staff are a bit more realistic and decent humans that a lot of my colleagues.

Do we have some sort of stuck up view and lar de dah idea of toffy nosed arguments and how they are debated? To be honest, the amount of effort that goes into them, from my side is proportional to how much respect I have for the viewpoint being given.

I am wondering how poor illegal immigrants and pirates learn about their rights and find the money to take their cases to the European Court (a very expensive procedure as I hear).

And also, I bet the judges' decision would be much different if they or a close relatives of theirs had spent some time in the company of those pirates.

One presume France also suffers from ambulance-chasing lawyers.

Oh dear. My monthly payments to the BNP, membership of the French Front National, support for Deutsche fur die Deutsch Partei, subscription to the Knights Templar, and honourary membership of the Spanish Falange are obviously having no effect on my leftist tendencies being all too obvious.

I took a large military looking chap to the airport a while back. Turns out he was working security on a merchant ship operating in that area. I asked about the threat of pirates and how they deal with them. He told that while they weren't allowed to carry firearms on board, they do have extremely powerful fire fighting hoses that fill up the little pirate boats in seconds...:ok:
