Rome, January 3 – The two Italian marines facing
trial in India for allegedly killing two Indian fishermen during
an anti-piracy mission are currently on a specially-organized
flight returning them to the Asian nation after their Christmas
permit expired.
Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone departed from
Rome military airport Ciampino after their 14-day permit
expired. They spent the Christmas festivities in Italy after
being given a two-week permit to return home for the holidays by
an Indian court.
They are flying back to the state of Kerala on an Italian
military aircraft where they will be driven to the city of
Kollum three hours away where they will hand their passports
back to Indian authorities.
The pair have been at the centre of a diplomatic row
between Italy and India after they allegedly shot fishermen
Jelestine Valentine and Ajesh Binki off the southern Indian
coast last February.
They face homicide charges.
The marines were released from detention on bail in June,
but were confined to Indian territory until they were granted
the permit for Christmas.
