SC allows Italian marine to go home

The Supreme Court on Thursday allowed Salvatore Girone, one of the two Italian marines accused of killing two fishermen off Kerala, to return to Italy, as the Centre didn't object to it.
The other co-accused in the case, Massimiliano Latorre, is already in Italy after being allowed by the Supreme Court in September 2014 to return to recuperate from a stroke. Recently, the court extended
his stay there till September 30 this year.
Mr. Girone’s plea comes even as Italy requested the Supreme Court to urgently enforce a United Nations arbitration tribunal’s decision enabling him to quickly return from India.
“Italy submitted a request to the summer recess Supreme Court of India to urgently enforce the decision of The Hague Court of Arbitration ... enabling Italian marine Salvatore Girone to quickly return to Italy,” the Italian Foreign Ministry said in a statement in Rome on Monday.
According to the Court of Arbitration decision, Italy and India are called on to cooperate in defining the conditions and the ways with which to regulate Mr. Girone’s return and permanence in Italy while awaiting the decision of the arbitration proceeding on the dispute over the jurisdiction on the Enrica Lexie case.
