MOMBASA (Xinhua) -- Described as 'Ivory Kenyan kingpin', Faisal Mohamed [front] is escorted to the cells by Kenya police after being sentenced 20 years imprisonment and a fine of Ksh. 20 million in a Mombasa Court. He was found 'guilty' of possessing ivory worth forty four million shillings. Principal magistrate Diana Mochache said considering the circumstantial evidence tabled in court, Mohammed is guilty of the offense. With the help of Interpol the 47-year-old Mombasa business man had last year been extradited back to Kenya from Dar es Salaam by the Tanzania authorities after he allegedly escaped a coast police dragnet when they raided his warehouse in search of illegal game trophies.

EU NAVFOR welcome conviction of armed pirates off Somalia

EUNAVFOR welcome conviction of armed pirates off Somalia | Coastweek

PORT LOUIS Mauritius -- The European Union’s counter-piracy EU Naval Force has welcomed the conviction of twelve men after they were found guilty by the Mauritian Court of attempting to carry out an act of piracy against a merchant ship, MSC Jasmine, on 5 January 2013. The successful conviction came after prosecution lawyers in the Republic of Mauritius challenged an earlier court ruling in November 2014 that had found the men not guilty of attacking the Cypriot container ship as it transited south in the Indian Ocean. This was the first piracy trial held by the Mauritian Court after a transfer agreement, that enables those suspected of committing an act of piracy off the coast of Somalia to be transferred to the island nation for prosecution, was signed between the European Union and the Mauritian Government in July 2011.
