Guyana to get tough with sea bandits


As reported here:
After months of incessant attacks on fishermen by gangs of sea bandits, Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee yesterday announced that legislation to make high seas piracy a non-bailable offence is being drafted and cooperation is being sought from Interpol to help track down the pirates.

"The best protection we can give to the affected fishermen is to rid the waters of pirates and put them behind bars," Rohee said, adding that he was upset over the criticisms his ministry has received as a result of the sea piracy.
