Cyprus Shipping Chamber (CSC) expressed their emotions last Thursday. Demanding a solution towards piracy and maritime kidnappings that occur in the Gulf Of Guinea.

Along the waters of Nigeria, Togo, Benin, Equatorial Guinea kidnappings , kidnap-for-ransom occur to often stated (CSC). However nothing stating nothing new, kidnappings is common among the waters for many decades. In addition as regions become more dangerous (high risk) many maritime companies try to sail different routes.

Furthermore CSC stated that international parties are poorly handling piracy in regions. Another statement said ” Treating the current level of attacks against shipping as tolerable“. Pointing out this is not the first maritime agency that’s furious about piracy attacks.

In detail

CSC stated that the United Nations and European Union should invest more resources battling these pirates. In addition sources state that even though The Gulf Of Guinea improved anti-piracy measures, however not being successful . CBC stated : It is extraordinary that governments seem less able to protects shipping than the they were almost 200 years ago”. Clearly stating , how many maritime agencies are fed up with piracy attacks still occurring today.

Stating an individual point , piracy off the coasts of Somalia have decreased massively since 2012. It takes time and different measures to secure an area form piracy. Furthermore not forgetting that as technology advances with maritime companies it does as well for pirates. Therefore, for piracy to end in the Gulf Of Guinea it will take more time than with Somalia.
