The Seychelles government has finalized an agreement with Danish authorities on the transfer of suspected pirates detained at sea for trial in Seychelles.

This new agreement follows on from the recently-signed memorandum of understanding agreements signed between the Seychelles government and the various Somali authorities, which will allow the onward transfer of the alleged pirates to Somali prison facilities once successful convictions have been secured.

The Ministry for Home Affairs has said that the signing of this agreement highlights and emphasizes the strong backing the Seychelles government is receiving from international partners in the fight against piracy and further strengthens the country’s status and strong track record of bringing pirates to justice.

The Danish authorities have described this new agreement as an expression of the close cooperation between Seychelles and Denmark in the fight against piracy in the Indian Ocean region.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated that the agreement is a continuation of close collaborations with partners such as Denmark, who have demonstrated their commitment to supporting Seychelles in the fight against piracy and that the relationship reflects the kind of cooperation needed if the government is to successfully face these challenges.

It should be noted that the Working Group on Legal Issues under the international Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia (CGPCS) is currently chaired by Danish Ambassador Thomas Winkler and that the Danish government has supported the development of the Seychelles legal system through financial contributions of DKK 2 Million to the UNODC local legal sector program in 2010.
