Regarding Establishing Effective Government, Most Successful Way To Eliminate Piracy
The source attributed this piracy to the absence of effective Somali government since 1991, and to the lack of security and stability, in addition to the diffusion of weapons in the hands of the people after the breakdown of the Somali army, where bandit groups began to appear throughout Somalia at the beginning of the nineties, in order to loot people’s properties or to take invalid royalties by force.
