Chapter Summary

It has been submitted in this study that the "extraordinary suspect" approach to arrest and detention of piracy suspects, and the practice of treating them as mere objects of proceedings potentially resulting in their transfer, stands in contradiction and defiance of the idea that piracy suspects too are holders of international individual rights, most notably stemming from international human rights law. A conclusive and definite answer to this question is not readily available, yet the foregoing analysis reveals various factors that, taken together, may contribute to the current approach to the arrest, detention and transfer of piracy suspects. It also has repercussions on the quality of the law on which deprivation of liberty during disposition and the transfer procedure rests. To conclude, the precise origins of and justification behind the current approach to arrest, detention and transfer of piracy suspects cannot be determined with certainty.
