  4. If the Mercedes was indeed sunk in 1804 then Peru has no claim on that treasure due to the fact the were not even around at that time!

  5. The ship, however, was a military vessel, which makes it and everything on it covered by Spanish/American Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation.

    The treaty is infallible and absolute. The gold belongs to Spain.

    Deal with it, LOSERS.

  6. Its not 400 but 200 (the Mercedes was sunk in 1804) and its not falling but respecting the rest place of death sailors. To be two times beaten with treachery is not a dishonor, the cheat is the one who should be ashamed.

  7. Más culpables son los que volvieron las cabezas para otro lado y dieron las oportunas ordenes para permitir el expolio.

  8. Your points are irrelevant. All the European states (and the US) agreed to abide by the terms of several treaties which clearly state that the salvage rights for sunken NATIONAL ships remain with the respective nations unless those ships are sunk within another country’s territorial waters. In other words, if a sunken ship is in international or Spanish waters and it is indeed an old Spanish naval vessel, then only the Spanish government has salvage rights.

  9. The government of Spain should be apologizing to it’s citizens for it’s passive strategy (if not total lack thereof) in pursuing this lost fortune rather than characterizing the nation as one of luddites and cry-babies by whining about it’s loss.

  10. Ladrones del siglo XXI, personas sin ningún tipo de valor ni escrupulos (todo es dinero, dinero, dinero), las últimas manos en las que se merecería acabar ese “tesoro”

  11. you are right in one thing: the biggest robbery was made in april not in march 2007 but i didnt have this information until this summer from AISLive staff in London: the pirates switched off their AISLive-GPS 2 weeks in april and i cannot guess where they were, Lloyd’s can only certify that they were in the Mediterranean, thats, in spanish waters.
