Fishermen forum condemns Italys stand on marine

Puducherry: Condemning Italy's stand that one of its marines accused of killing two Indian fishermen in 2012 off the Kerala coast will not return to India, National Fish Workers Forum (NFF) Thursday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and take steps to procure the presence of Massimiliano Latorre to face judicial process.

Referring to remarks of Head of Italian Senate's defence committee Nicola Latorre that the marine would not return to face the trial, NEF Chairman M Ilango, in a release here, said "This stand is highly condemnable."

He appealed to the Prime Minister and also the External Affairs Minister to intervene and summon the Italian Ambassador to register the objection to the stand of Italian authorities.

Latorre was allowed by the Supreme Court in September 2014 to go to Italy initially for four months after he had suffered a brain stroke. His stay there was extended subsequently.

Latorre and Salvatore Girone, who were on board ship 'Enrica Lexie', are accused of killing two Indian fishermen off the Kerala coast on February 15, 2012 after mistaking them for pirates.
