Abstract

Seychelles is currently working to solve their piracy problem not simply manage it. Although numerous measures are underway by a multinational force, piracy continues to develop into a lucrative business. Severing the ties between piracy financiers and their criminal networks will help eliminate these activities. A standard policy mandating the arrest, prosecution, hold, and transport of all pirates is essential to solve the problem and deter this menace.
