La Piratería somalí: el precio de una vida


La noticia de la liberación de Judith Tebbutt ha vuelto a traer a las portadas de la

prensa británica el tema del pago de rescates. Nadie querría privar a Judith Tebbutt,

ni a su familia, de la alegría y el alivio que supone su liberación.

Pero, aún así, se puede observar que, en algunos casos, el pago de rescates recibe

duras críticas. Muchos subscriben el adagio de Kipling quien decía que, una vez

que se paga el oro danés, ya no te libras del danés (o en este caso, el pirata). El

poema de Kipling se comprende bien desde la óptica victoriana, pero presenta un

error fatídico.

[This is a translation into Spanish of an article I published very recently entitled "Somlian piracy : the price of a life". It focusses on the suggestion that the payment of ransom, hitherto legal under English law, should be prevented or proscribed in some way].
