Prison will probably better than what they had before, I think it's a waste of taxpayers money to keep them here. Their own government should be forced to take responsibility and hold the in their own prison.

Or has this sentence been handed down since the killing of Japanese in Mali became big news.

Is japan willing to make itself a target for extreme Islamic activity ?

It may be an issue later if the claims about not understanding the judicial process are true.

The Indian Navy knows what to do with Somali pirates, they just blow up their mother ships, let the pirates wander out at sea, not waste time and money on taking them to courts, jails etc...
