New Delhi 'should recognise Rome's jurisdiction'

Italian govt confident will bring India marines home

(see previous story on site). Rome, January 18 - The Italian government on Friday said an Indian supreme court ruling earlier in the day made Italian authorities more confident India would grant Rome jurisdiction in the case of two marines accused of killing two Indian fishermen in February. The supreme court set up a special tribunal to adjudicate the case and recognised the incident took place in international waters but added the marines did not therefore have "sovereign immunity". In a statement, the Italian government said the ruling "encourages further commitment" in efforts to get Salvatore Girone and Massimilano Latorre home. It said it was "confident" India will recognise "the exclusive jurisdiction of the flag State" for ships operating in international waters.
