Sterio Quoted in Mauritias Press Article on Somali Piracy

C|M|LAW’s Calfee Halter and Griswold Professor of Law Milena Sterio was quoted recently in an article that appeared in LeMauricien.com, regarding the work being done by lawyers in that country in the area of Somali piracy.  Sterio has worked with other American lawyers and law professors to support the efforts of Mauritias and other countries in prosecuting Somali pirates.  Sterio outlined the growing problem of child piracy, saying it has emerged as “one of the most difficult legal issues.” She said that most child pirates are released upon capture or immediately after trial and as a result the Somali pirate kingpins are recruiting more and more of them, telling the juveniles that they have nothing to fear if captured.
