One of the pirates involved in the murder of Sir Peter Blake has been captured after 15 years on the run. He was arrested in Brazil during a routine stop. Sir Peter Blake was the world's most famous yachtsman at the time and his violent death by pirates on the Amazon was an international story. We ask the panelists if this latest arrest brings justice to his family and to the many kiwis affected by his death.
