UN Security Council Adopts Piracy Resolution

Un_symbol_sm[1] The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) unanimously adopted Resolution 1918 on April 27 calling on Member States to criminalize piracy in their domestic laws and to consider prosecuting pirates in domestic courts.  The Resolution also directs the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, to prepare a report on possible options for prosecution of pirates in the future, including the feasibility of establishing a regional or international tribunal to prosecute pirates.  The Secretary General is to present that report to the UNSC within three months.
