The latest news for October 13th 2017
A very interesting week for maritime security, with significant incidents across the board. In West Africa, the trial of several suspected pirates has adjourned for a few weeks. The men are being tried on firearms charges because – this is still incredible – Nigeria has no piracy legislation in place. This week also saw a Nigerian Navy admiral once again restate the rules on private security operators in the nation's waters. It seems a further clamp down is on the cards.
