Pirate of the Baltic Convicted

Andrey Lunev, one of the eight suspects charged with capturing bulker Arctic Sea in 2009, pleaded guilty and was convicted by the Moscow City Court in simplified “special procedure” hearings and sentenced to five years of imprisonment. The Maltese-flagged, Finnish-owned, Russian-crewed bulker was captured in the Baltic Sea and freed by the Russian Navy near Cape Verde; all alleged pirates (among whom were Estonians, Russians, and stateless persons) were detained and brought to Russia.
