SC to hear Marine's plea for extension of stay in Italy

One of the Italian marines charged for killing two fishermen off Kerala coast in 2012 has urged the Supreme Court to allow him extension of his stay back in Italy due to deterioration in health condition following a heart surgery.

A bench of Chief Justice H L Dattu and Justice A K Sikri posted the application for consideration on January 12. The plea was made by senior advocate K T S Tulsi on behalf of Italy’s naval officer Massimiliano Latorre who was operated on January 5.

“There has been deterioration in health conditions of the applicant forcing advancement of his surgery from its earlier schedule of January 8,” Tulsi said, seeking the court’s permission to allow him stay back for more months.

The court had earlier refused the plea made by Latorre for extension of his stay in Italy on health grounds. It had also rejected the plea of co-accused Salvatore Girone to go to Italy to celebrate Christmas.

Latorre was granted permission to go to Italy on September 12 last for four months for medical treatment and recovery after he suffered a stroke here on August 31.
