New Delhi: The Supreme Court Friday permitted Italian marine Massimilano Latorre to go back home to Italy for his treatment for four months.
The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice R.M. Lodha said the order would be effective only after the Italian marine has filed an "unequivocal and unambigous undertaking" on his return to India upon the completion of four months.
Latorre is accused along with another Italian marine of killing two Indian fishermen in February 2012 of the coast of Kerala, mistaking them for sea pirates.
Latorre has moved the court for permission to go back to his country after he suffered a brain stroke recently and was admitted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.
