Somali pirates get paid with $1.3 million ransom.

Somali pirates got $1.3 million US dollars to release the Ship MV Marathon where one innocent seaman was killed and another seaman was fatally wounded by this blood thirsty bandits. Those organizations which grab money from every seaman in the name license and watch keeping certificates are working in their air conditioned offices very hard to provide safety for the seafarers.


Now the money is going to be shared with the speed boat providers and other service providers for these day light bandits.

The ship Marathon was hijacked on May 7, 2009 with Ukrainian crew onboard. Still Somali pirates hold 14 ships carrying more than 200 innocent sailors.

It is time for the nations to take action against these killer Bandits.
