La Pirateria somala: il prezzo di una vita


La notizia del rilascio di Judith Tebbutt ha riportato sulle prime pagine dei quotidiani

britannici il problema del pagamento dei riscatti e, sebbene nessuno intenda togliere

né a lei né alla sua famiglia la gioia e il sollievo per tale liberazione, è chiaro che il

pagamento di un riscatto possa dare adito, in alcune circostanze, ad ampie critiche.

Molti si rifanno ai versi di Kipling: una volta pagato il Danegeld (tributi pagati ai

vichinghi per scongiurarne le razzie, n.d.t.), non ti liberi più dei vichinghi (o in questo

caso dei pirati). Il poema costituiva certamente un’ottima lettura per l’epoca

vittoriana, tuttavia è (fatalmente) in errore.....

[This is a translation into Italian 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; a suggestion that is of serious concern to the maritime community].
