Cases such as United Kingdom vs. Denmark re the "Red Crusader" (Hague 1962) and United States vs. Kawaguchi (1976) as well as the cases re the vessels "South Tomi" and "Visara" which also spring to mind.

There is a law and there is a will to react when protecting one's own interests. The problem arises, as in the case of the piracy in the Indian Ocean, when countries choose not to react as the cost:benefit ratio of such operations makes them unsustainable or politically indefensible.

umm only if you are in the UN. this is the problem not every one is in the UN and assuming they are is not a good idea. the un does not control the world and nor does any specific country. Since a law was passed by a bodies that does not include every one how pray is the Law applicable?

things happen in life. make them all into good things.
