Rome, March 27 - Former foreign minister Giulio
Terzi said he resigned in parliament because his conscience
could not support the government's decision to return two
marines to India to face homicide charges.
In a post on his Facebook page late Wednesday, Terzi added
that he resigned publicly in parliament due to his commitment to
democracy.
Parliament, as the ultimate seat of democracy, would be the
correct place to resign, he explained.
The decision, he added, was not driven by any "personal"
initiative, Terzi said.
"I did what I believed in, answering only to my
conscience".
Earlier in the day, outgoing Premier Mario Monti faced
questions in both houses of parliament about the Terzi's
resignation and the decision to send the two marines back to
India.
Terzi has said that he stepped down because he did not
agree with the Monti government's decision to return the pair to
India where they stand accused of killing two fishermen while on
anti-piracy duty a year ago.
