>US To Punish Companies That Paid Ransoms To Pirates?

>The International Chamber of Shipping is concerned about reports that US may be considering some kind of ban to companies that paid ransoms for the release of their seafarers. The ISC also fears that the planed ban might apply to non-US shipping companies too.

While there is no concrete evidence about such action by US, if happened such a ban would only made things worse.

Here is the letter of ICS and here is the announcement of Turkish Chamber of Shipping.
