Finding out the 'Achilles'
Heels': Piracy Suppression
under International Law
and Chinese Law
Manjiao Chi*
Piracy poses a great danger to international security and peace. It is necessaryfcr the
in-ernalional comininnity and individual States to take actions to suppress piracy.
Despite inlernational cooperation and existing international antipiracy laws, the
internalional comInunity lacks an effective legal regime to suppress piracy. China
ha sfidaiental interests in fighting against piracy and has activel cooperated in
accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions. However, Chinas domestic
antipiracy laws are defective in their substantive and procedural aspects. Further
efforts should be made at both the national and international levels in order to
effectively suppress global piracy.
