Nigerian Pirates

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-53754188


Not sure if I'm reading it correctly, but it looks like they ransomed the crew for $200,000 and were later caught and fined $156,000! Sounds like good business to me.


Although there are more on trial, so the state is the one making the money!


Were are the prison sentences? or the Ritual feeding to the Lions?
