Information
The revised law requires South Korean ships to build a safe area (refuge) against pirate attacks
According to Yonhap news agency, an amendment to the law adopted by the national assembly of Korea on November 22, 2012 forced the construction of so-called "shelters" inside ships sailing in international waters.
Although it is not clear when the amendment will enter into force, it is expected to enter into force soon. Since previous laws did not require shipowners to provide such a safe area, crew members were vulnerable to pirate attacks.
Since 2006, there have been a total of nine abductions of South Korean seafarers in Somali waters. Among them, six cases design Korean ships, two cases involve Japanese, one case involves Singaporeans.
According to a source close to the South Korean government told the Yonhap news agency, the South Korean government is also ready to provide mandatory security for ships passing through the danger zone.
