SOMALI Pirates have bucked the recession and earned an impressive £7.5m in mooring fees for Samho Dream, a South Korean oil tanker carrying $170m of crude and 24 crew (5.8m) and Golden a Singaporean flagged ship with 23 Chinese crew (£1.7m).

We are now counting our cash. Soon we shall get down from the ship.”
