Somali pirates like Korean food, interpreter brought in from UK

The Seoul Shinmun reports that the five Somali pirates being detaining in Busan slept cleaned their dinner plates and slept very well their first night in Korea.

According to Busan maritime police, the pirates were provided a meal of rice, kimchi fried rice, doenjang soup, fried egg and japchae. The police said they cleaned their plates, and slept very, very well at night.

In the morning, the pirates were given a breakfast of rice, dongtaetguk, fried egg, kimchi and tofu. Once again, they cleaned their plates.

Asked in English about Korean food, one of the pirates responded with “good, good,” said the police.

Screw Egypt — the really gripping news is happening in Busan.

A police official said the pirates spent their first night in Korea without expressions of fear or nervousness, and that while their crime was serious, they would do their best to protect them while in the tank given the special circumstances, namely, that they are “foreign pirates.”

The Seoul Shinmun also reports that a British interpreter is being brought in for the pirates’ trial.

A government official said the Foreign Ministry has been looking for an interpreter fluent in Somali and English, and they think they can get one in the UK, where Korea’s ambassador for international cooperation on terrorism visited last week and asked for help finding an interpreter.

Two Somalis in Korea on refugee visas have been participating in the investigation, with the interpretation going from Somali to English to Korean.

The trial will need more precise interpretation, including legal terminology, so the government believes it needs another Somali translator.

Oh, and in more pirate news, one of the pirates who testified that he shot the captain of the Samho Jewelry is now denying it.

Oh, and you’ll be happy to know that Mohamed Rage, minister for maritime transport, ports and counter-piracy at Puntland, Somalia, approves of Korea’s recent actions:

Said Mohamed Rage, minister for maritime transport, ports and counter-piracy at Puntland, Somalia, praised Korea’s counteraction toward the outlaws. “The strong action against pirate criminals by the navies of South Korea and Malaysia on Jan. 21 is a clear indication of resolve on the part of the international community,” he said in a press release, adding that there are more than 280 pirates detained at the state government cell.

Keep up the good work there, Minister Rage.

    The interpretation is normally so good simply going from English to Korean and back again, I can only imagine the kind of fun the court’s going to have roundtripping things from Somali to English to Korean to English to Somali and back again.

    That was genuinely funny. Nice-uh one. Does anyone know if they will face the death penalty? (Do “they” still literally or figuratively hang pirates?)

  • Drowned before the ship sank

    Great story. I am just wondering how the Korean government is going to go about its plans to directly intervene in future pirate episodes. Will they only attempt to defend Korean registered vessels? Will they only attempt to free ships with a majority of Korean sailors? Will they only try to remove the Koreans from the ships and leave the other sailors to be rescued by their own governments? Will they attempt to free Korean sailors from non-Korean registered ships? Are the private companies that are the benefits of these anti-piracy measures paying for the military help or am I, the tax payer footing the bill to allow private companies to make profits by shipping their items through Somali waters? I recommend watching the South Park episode where Cartman becomes a pirate. Great Episode!

  • cmm

    Anybody know what happened to that pirate that the US captured awhile back? …the one whose comptatriots got their heads sniped off by Obama? I recall seeing that he got sent to the USA, and remember seeing him smiling and laughing about it… but have come across nothing since. I wonder if he likes American cheesburgers and pizza.

  • cmm

    I read the guy who shot the captain (if they can figure out who it was) could face the death penalty, legally. Of course with the moratorium, he’s likely to get life instead. Hope he can get a hold of the Somali version of Brother One Cell so he can learn what’s ahead of him.

    Korean food can be extremely tasty but it’s really, really complicated.

  • 8675309

    For the first time in their entire lives, these Somalis are getting ‘three hots and a cot’ — and at taxpayer expense too. (For them, getting a life sentence in a ROK foreigner prison would be like winning the lottery.)

    Hilarious. What do you mean ancillary, though? The robots, which will of course be programmed by Koreans (foreigners don’t understand Korean culture) won’t be used after their introductory class in Korea’s schools.

    now i get it!

    can you get meat cut korean style? if you can, get some tungshim (등심).
    for every five slices, put:

    1.5 tablespoons of soy
    slightly less than one even tablespoon of sugar
    2 tablespoons of sesame oil
    and
    2 tablspoons of sake or cooking rice wine
    1 clove of garlic

    you can marinate or cook right away. you can adjust the soy, sugar, and oil to your liking but this is a simple recipe that can give you some idea of how to tweak korean seasonings to produce something other than ‘tolgogi’. :-)

    give it a try because the recipe is so easy and fast.

    The pirates are doing well – eating three nice hot meals a day kimchi fried rice, doenjang soup, fried egg and japchae sounds great!

    Its also providing lots of free world-wide advertising for Korea – “even pirates approve of Korean food – its good!”

    seems the pirates could even get off light – all 5 are now claiming that the “killed-pirates” were the ones who did the hijacking and killing – and the 5 detained had just innocently hopped onto the boat afterwards by mistake.

    Meanwhile, the captain and 43-member crew of the KOREAN Golden Wave crabbing boat – seem not to be getting any assistance at all – whilst they are still being held by pirates.

    It seems that crab-fisherman are just not as important as the crew from the 11500-ton chemical carrier Samho Jewelry.

  • http://pawikirogii.blogspot.com pawikirogii

    ‘ i learned somehting about Koreans: never underestimate them’ yangachi

    but that’s just it; the west underestimates the koreans. that’s why they’re always surprised to see that korea competes with the big boys and sometimes wins. i saw a news article the other day on the decline of japan. the author wrote that japan now had to compete with indian and chinese companies. can you imagine? it’s korea that competes with japan and yet the journalist seemed oblivious to this since it’s highly likely he dismisses korea because it’s land mass. that’s a mistake. you count the koreans out at your own risk.

    btw, you’re right about robotics. that’s where the future is going.

    Not sure how 3 hot meals a day and a warm bed will help deter piracy. Now it appears they are being treated as minor celebrities “who like Korean food” no less. Wow! Put ‘em in a Hanbok and ask them on TV what it is they like most about Korea!

    I really hope they make an example out of these killers and hang them from one of the ROKS fine Navy ships. BIG Kudos to Korea for already taking out their partners in crime.

  • slim

    Kimchi cures scurvy, I heard.

  • bumfromkorea

    Okay, couple of things.

    1. No journalist actually asked the question “do you like kimchi?” in the article in question. The journalist actually asked “Do you find Korean food acceptable?” (“먹을만 하냐?” is hardly “Do you like kimchi?” – in fact, it’s more like “Do you mind that we gave you kimchi?”; my dad used that phrase when he made me try sea cucumber, for crying out loud.), and the intention is pretty clear: the journalist wants to incite the feeling that’s being echoed in this thread (“They’re fucking pirates! Why are we feeding them people food?!”) To call that a “free world-wide advertising for Korea” is, to be honest, a ridiculous twist of words and facts.

    Seriously, one guy (fullslab) changes the wording to “pirates like kimchi”, and not one fucking person on this thread bothers to check out what was actually asked, or the context/nuances of the question?

    2. What the hell do you guys want the Koreans to do to these pirates, exactly? Break countless international/domestic laws and just go fucking 중정 on these guys? Go do a GITMO to them when it’s pretty clear (unlike the disturbingly large sections of detainees of GITMO) what kind of sentences they’ll get? Good lord, execute them when the trial is over but why the hell would you want a country to break down its own standards in practices?

  • bumfromkorea

    Btw, in other Korean media, the pirates are described as “뻔뻔” (shameless) when they’re talking about the pirates’ reactions to those question. But yeah, I’m sure the intention of the articles is “GO KOREA! WOOHOO!! KIMCHI #1!!! WE RULE!!! YEAH!!!”

    Wow, you guys sound like you know how to cook. :) Shame on me.

    I like Korean food too.

    Hon, I’m seriously thinking about learning how to cook, which I consider an essential skill for life.

    I can wash and cut vegetables “freestyle” and maybe… fry eggs and stuff. But that’s about it. (Haha.) And NO, I shouldn’t make you suffer from my terrible cookery. So, I’m thinkin’ I should really find time to attend cooking classes, if available, for various kinds of cuisine ’cause, like YB said, “learning is a long and tricky process.” And I would sure like to put a smile on your face! ;)

  • WeikuBoy

    Our judges have considered, and rule . . . against Solicitor Carr.

    Saying hung instead of hanged is a common error, and in his comment does not read as “diction” or as interesting writing. Nor does it work there as a double entendre a la The Village People.

    My dad would say, “You’d bitch if you were hung with a new rope.” That’s diction.

    And the expression is standards and practices, or Standards & Practices.

  • slim

    I think bumfromkorea is overreacting here a bit, but from my reading of the Seoul Sinmun report it does appear that Robert oversold the culinary aspect of the reported police-pirate exchange.

    I guess the Korean media’s history of food chauvinism and narcissism of small differences makes it hard to presume innocence in cases like this.

    Next headlines: Somali pirates dig Samsung phones and Girls Generation, want to learn Korean.

  • 8675309

    Btw, in other Korean media, the pirates are described as “뻔뻔”

    Koreans don’t have much experience dealing with Africans of any type, which is why they are usually left scratching their heads when attempting to describe crimes and modi operandi that while unfamiliar to East Asians, would be easily recognized in the police blotters for the southside of Chicago and East St. Louis.

    Quick fix: Send all Korean prosecutors at the Seoul Supreme Prosecutor’s office on a one-month paid exchange program with the D.A.’s office in L.A. County, or the D.A. in East St. Louis’ St. Clair Co. or the State’s Attorney office in Chicago’s Cook County to get a feel for the type of routine street crime and other felonies typical of the African-American community.

    Also, a quick visit to the Cook County Lockup and the Criminal Courts Building in Chicago wouldn’t hurt as a down-and-dirty introduction to inner-city jurisprudence 101.

    (That kind of program reminds of a program a girlfriend of mine went through when she was in high school. She attended an all-girls’ parochial school in Chicago, and she said as part of their civics curriculum, the nuns would would bring the entire class of young girls over to the Cook County jail for a field trip of sorts. However, instead of the static displays at the Field Museum that they were used to for example, where prim-and-proper Catholic schoolgirls would ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ wondrously at Cro-Magnon man, this time the nuns paraded their chaste charges past the mens’ lockup and holding pen — where the jailbirds while time away behind reinforced windows before getting arraigned or sentenced or whatever. Of course, as she and her other Catholic schoolgirl classmates — clad in their uniform plaid jumpers, pleated-miniskirts and penny-loafers — passed by on the other side of the bullet-proof glass, the reaction from the mostly black and Latino prisoners was, according to her, “…just like walking into the primate exhibit at the Lincoln Park Zoo”. She said not only did the prisoners go apeshit when they saw them, they literally started bouncing off the windows, making hyena sounds, while clawing, slobbering, crudely gesturing, and jacking off at the cowering, completely shocked and crying schoolgirls on the other side of the window. Afterward, she said the nuns encountered little or no resistance to the final homily of the day entitled: “All men are vile animals”. )

  • DLBarch

    Though some on MH may be saddened to hear this, the death penalty (by hanging or “hunging” or any other method) is no longer sanctioned or practiced (except, apparently, by Russia) for the act of piracy. (Murder in the act of piracy, however, is another matter.)

    However, the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea, international maritime law, and maritime tradition dictate that the capturing state DOES have authority to determine and carry out whatever penalty it seeks to impose for piracy on the high seas.

    Which raises the question of what, exactly, Seoul intends to do with these picaroons.

    @47 pawi does yet another good example of poor reading comprehension leading to mistaken conclusions — or deliberate misreading being done to buttress a dodgy point. I’ve witnessed 8 years of this, as the bullshit artist formerly known as Shin Jong-il would know.

    The Korean media’s reputation for boosterism is indeed such that it is highly believable that they would focus on whether these pirates liked Korean food. (Hell, I was in the room at multiple occasions at the 1988 Seoul Games and the 2002 World Cup when bemused world athletes were asked in news conferences, where time and question opportunities were limited, about kimchee and such things. It gets old.) Aaronm’s joke is pitch-perfect in this context, too.

    From all appearances and to its credit, South Korea is going the extra mile to give the pirates reasonable levels of due process. Personally, I like seouldout’s suggestions on how to deal with the pirate problem in Somalia.

    but (although some posters on here have denied / argued against this) it seems the media circus is using this to advertise Korean [something].

    It may also help the pirates, because all the nice things they are saying is exactly the type of stuff Korean people love to hear, which will be to their advantage in court.

    Life is so good in the hoosegow in Busan that two of them have been saying, hey, we like here, we don’t want to go back. That’s the kind of appeal that Koreans may take seriously. The Korean National Tourist Organization has trouble convincing tourists that Korea is every bit as great a tourist destination as nearby Japan, Taiwan or mainland China. It’s nice to see that more and more people, Somalian pirates included, would like to stay on in a country that offers lots of beaches, mountain scenery, a growing number of fine restaurants and bars and excellent cuisine that doesn’t take much getting used to.

    해적들을 수감하고 있는 부산해양경찰서 측은 “해적들이 31일 아침에 제공된 밥과 김치, 두부구이 등을 ‘굿(Good)’이라는 감탄사까지 연발하며 모두 남김없이 비웠다”며 “특히 쌀밥과 김치를 좋아하는 것 같았다”고 설명했다.

    Hilarious.

    Not sure why they brought them back to the ROK though. What the hell are they going to do with them? At best, they’ll be a burden on the tax-payer for years to come.

    They really ought to have just dumped them on some nearby coast – perhaps somewhere in Puntland – and forgot about them.

    That said, you look like a child molester in your photo. (Ewwww! Chester the Molester! Stay away!)

    In general i like your posts a lot (esp. those involving Chicago life, having lived there for over 5 years, evenly split between N. Dearborn and Forest Park) but this comment is really below the belt.

    What the hell are they going to do with them?

    The old, mean, mixing drinks with Zyprexa, trolling me would say they’d probably find meaningful employment in some slightly-below-average Hagwon, joking aside that’s the ages-old problem with the con population. Me personally i take a middle-of-the-ground position between liberals and hard-liners: if you didn’t hurt anybody, some rehabilitation chance should be granted: through hard-labour. Send them to some rural area, where, while waiting for the mass-production of agricultural robots, they can help the local farming community for 12 hours a day, hence experiencing a less sweet than galbi and k-pop side of Korea.

    # 67 Darth Babaganoosh,
    “Why would we? No one pays attention to, much less takes seriously, Fullslab.”

    Since when do you talk for all(“we” and “No one”)?

    You’re correct, you aren’t anyone / “No one.” I think your post is quite common in that most have seen/read posts like yours that suggests “No one” pays attention yet someone(YOU in this case) always responds. Minion!

    The investigators have come to the conclusion that Mahomed shot Seok during the final assault.

    “[Mahomed] is stubbornly denying the charges, saying he never laid hands on a gun,”

    South Korean sailors held captive by Somali pirates for a week said they were frequently beaten and their lives were repeatedly threatened before South Korean commandos rescued them, a news report said Wednesday.

    Such abuse — and even torture — is being systematically perpetrated by Somali pirates on their hostages, according to the top commander of the European Union Naval Force.

    One sailor said he lost several teeth when a captor beat him.

    “Pirates trampled and beat me whenever I talked with my captain,” Kim Du-chan was quoted as saying by Yonhap. “I lost my four front teeth after being hit by the elbow of one pirate.”

    The pirates frequently beat the captain and other senior crew while shouting “kill,” another sailor Choi Jin-kyung said.

    pirates have recently tied hostages upside down and dragged them in the sea, locked them in freezers, beaten them and used plastic ties around their genitals.
