Somali Pirates: Belgians Talk "Stardom" But Only Star Turn for Pirate Leader Will Be in Court

Noted yesterday that a Somali pirate "king" had been arrested in Belgium (see here) - the best part is that the star turn the pirate expected will be at his trial on hijacking and kidnapping charges instead in the movies, as set out by BBC News in "Somali pirate leader 'Big Mouth' arrested in Belgium 'sting'"
Mohammed Abdi Hassan, also known as Afweyneh or Big Mouth, was detained at Brussels international airport on Saturday after a sting operation.

Undercover agents had persuaded the Somali and an associate that they wanted to make a documentary about their pirate exploits.

Mr Abdi Hassan now faces criminal charges, including hijacking.
When you go seeking fame, you sometimes get the wrong kind.
