Italian Marines case

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday sought response from the Centre on a plea by one of the Italian marines, facing murder charges in India, to travel to his country for medical treatment for two months.
The apex court also exempted Italian marine Massimiliano Latorre, who suffered brain stroke on August 31, from appearing before the Chanakyapuri Police Station once a week as a condition of his bail.
A bench headed by Chief justice R M Lodha asked Additional Solicitor General (ASG) P S Narsimha to file the Centre’s response by September 12 when it will hear the matter.
The bench also comprising justices Kurien Joseph and R F Nariman asked the ASG to make the stand clear whether the Centre has any serious objection to the plea of the ailing marine. Senior advocates Soli Sorabjee and KTS Tulsi appeared for the Italian marines Salvatore Girone and Lattore.
Tulsi submitted that Italian Ambassador to India, Daniele Mancini, who was present in the court room, is ready to give any undertaking in this regard. Latorre had submitted a request to the Supreme Court to allow him to return to Italy for his “more rapid and complete recovery”. (PTI)
