Spain is really serious about piracy!

Earlier this year, I blogged about life sentences imposed on convicted pirates in federal courts in the United States.  The U.S. court imposed the lengthy sentence in part as a deterrent measure.  However, this week, the Spanish National Court imposed a 439-year sentence on two Somali pirates who were involved in the 2009 hijacking of a Spanish fishing boat off the coast of Somalia.  Spain is really serious!
