New Delhi, April 2 - The Indian Supreme Court on
Tuesday revoked travel restrictions on Italian Ambassador
Daniele Mancini, who had been banned from exiting the country in
a row over two Italian marines accused of killing two Indian
fishermen.
A hearing has been scheduled for April 16 for the
ambassador, who was slapped with the ban last month when Italy
announced it did not intend to return Massimiliano Latorre and
Salvatore Girone to India to face trial for allegedly killing
fishermen Jelestine Valentine and Ajesh Binki one year ago.
Italy eventually decided to return the men to New Delhi,
prompting the Italian foreign minister to resign.
The supreme court's decision is the latest move in a
protracted diplomatic row.
Italy has always contended that the men be tried in India
since the incident took place in international waters.
Latorre and Girone had been providing security aboard the
Enrica Lexie merchant ship, which had sailed into
pirate-infested waters.
Indian prosecutors say the marines mistook the fishermen
for pirates.
