It appears that the greatest danger to piracy is vanity. A notorious Somali pirate leader known as “Loud Mouth” has been captured by Belgian police in a creative sting operation. Mohammed Abdi Hassan was lured to the Brussels Airport in the belief that he was going to sign an agreement to make a movie on his life. He made an estimated fortune of hundreds of millions and recently announced that he was going to move from piracy to politics — a nature transition in any country. Somalia has long been criticized for protecting such pirates but it was vanity that led to his undergoing.
Hassan arrived from Kenya on a flight only to be met by police. Notably, a high-ranking Somali official was held at the same time — curious company for one of the most notorious pirates in the world. He could now face up to 30 years for piracy, and hostage taking.
A fitting end to the “Loud Mouth.”

Excellent observation to which I would only add that in the U. S., if the pirate can’t make the transition, he has his sons (sometimes daughters) do it.
You have to kill him. No trial Walk the plank. Let the victims come and watch. Take no prisoners. Wake up World to the Pirate Territories.
Well played raff. 😉
Awesome con! He probably thought the movie was about him! 🙂
Hopefully the politician, having diplomatic immunity of course, will soon be returned to his homeland, duct taped to a drone bomb……
Those seven deadly sins!
Only Johnny Depp could pull off being a vain pirate.
