Spokespeople for the so-called Somali pirates have expressed willingness to part of their loot captured from transnational boats to Haiti.

Leaders of these groups have declared they have links in various places around the world to help them ensure the delivery of aid without being detected by the armed forces of enemy governments.

The "pirates" typically redistribute a significant portion of their profits among relatives and the local population.

A Somali "pirate" spokesperson said: "The humanitarian aid to Haiti can not be controlled by the United States and European countries; they have no moral authority to do so.

"They are the ones pirating mankind for many years."
