Italian marine allowed to return home until trial by SC

26th May, NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has allowed an Italian marine, accused of killing two Indian fishermen, to return to Italy.

The court also ordered Salvatore Girone, the marine, to not attempt to influence witnesses or destroy evidence in the case upon his return to Italy.

In addition, the court asked the Italian ambassador to give an undertaking that he would bring Girone back to India to face trial when the time comes.

The Supreme Court ruled that Girone can return to Italy while the United Nations tribunal decides on a jurisdictional issue between India and Italy.

The apex court had earlier allowed another marine Massimiliano Lattore – also accused of the murder of the fishermen – to return to his country on health grounds.
