Italy moves Supreme Court in marine case

NEW DELHI: The Italian government has moved the Supreme Court seeking quashing of the criminal proceedings against its two marines charged with the murder of two Indian fishermen off Kerala coast this February.

The petition filed by the Italian government and its two marines has challenged the May 29 order of the Kerala High Court, which had held that the duo were liable to be tried under the jurisdiction of the Indian courts.

The petitioners have also sought a stay on all further criminal proceedings in the case pending before a Kollam court contending that Kerala Police had no authority to conduct the probe and courts in India have no jurisdiction as the incident occurred outside the Indian territorial waters.

The Italian government is being represented by Titus & Co, Advocates and senior advocate Harish Salve, who has settled the petition, will argue the matter in the apex court.

The case pertains to the killings of two Indian fishermen by Italian naval officers, Chief Sargeant Massimilano Lattore and Sargeant Salvatore Girone, off Kerala coast in February.

Fearing pirate attack, the two officers on board ‘Enrica Lexie,’ had allegedly fired at the vessel off Kerala coast, killing the two fishermen.

The marines, who were arrested by the Kerala police, are currently out on bail.

The Italian government has contended that Military Court in Rome has the jurisdiction to prosecute the accused officers as it is the Republic of Italy and its institutions (military and judicial) have the authority to deal with any inquiry and consequential legal proceedings against them. -PTI

    Some naïve, innocent & gullible people state that Sanjay Gandhi was killed because his trainer and the pilot of the Puspak they were flying went into a free fall downward spin, while showing off. Indira Gandhi was killed by her Sikh body guards because she attacked Golden Tample with Tanks and APC’s. And, Rajiv Gandhi was killed because, he messed up with the LTTE. While the people area actually killed these ways, we should not forget that they were in the enemy list of the USA and the USA uses its Body Area Networks, Mind Reading Networks & Mind Control Network to work on the minds of the Indians and all other Asians so that they will take such decisions which they would not have taken if the USA & European Christian Body Area Networks, Mind Reading Networks & Mind Control Network are not targeting them, monitoring & manipulating them & other people close to them, arround them & who matter to them, constantly reading their minds, constantly & 24/7 feeding them, through brain waves using neuro cells, with kinds of thoughts, ideas, reflections, recalls & decisions that when acted upon, will bring Indira Gandhi, Sanjay Gandhi & Rajiv Gandhi with dissapointments, anger, disillusionment, ridicule, scorn, anger, angst & hatred from people who are both in the close circle as well as in a large number of concentric circles around them, thereby making Indira Gandhi unnecessarily & needlessly impose emergency & send Indian army against India’s holiest Golden Hari Temple at Amritsar, make Sanjay Gandhi come out with 5 points that make him instantly unpopular, make the two Indians Maneka Gandhi & Indira Gandhi move increasingly apart, cleverly make the Non-Aryan European Italian Roman Catholic Christian Sonia Antonia Maino come closer to Indira Gandhi & take control of her even as Indira Gandhi is being treated harshly, unjustly & barbarically by both the Non-Aryan Europe & Non-Aryan European USA, expel the diehard supporters of Indira Gandhi such as Pranab Mukherjee from their own Indian National Congress, make Rajiv Gandhi the PM even when he did not have even a second worth of adminsitrative experience, stop buying arms from Russia but buy them from USA & Europe, the two mortal, pernicious & deadly enemies of India & get implicated in Non-Aryan European Christian Swedish AB Bofors Defense Corruption Commission scandal, convert Rajiv Gandhi from Islam (his father was the Iranian Parsee Language Speaking Shia Muslim Firoz Jehangir Khan Ghandy) to Chrisitianity & rename him as Roberto, baptise his Chirstian son & Christian daughter in Church (Raul Rahul Firoz Jehangir Rajiv Roberto Ghandy Vinci and Bianca Priyanka Firoz Jehangir Rajiv Roberto Ghandy: Bianca was married to the Non-Aryan European Christian Maureen’s son Robert Vadra), make Rajiv Gandhi interfere in Sri Lanka & issue threats against both the Sri Lankan Buddhists & Sri Lankan Tamilianas, make Rajiv Gandhi send many ten thousands of Indian Soldiers against the Indian Tamils & Sri Lankan Tamils in Sri Lanka & kill lakhs of Indian Hindu Tamils & Sri Lankan Hindu Tamils in Sri Lanka. Now, there is talk of making Rahul Gandhi as Indian Defense Minister and make India buy even more arms & ammunitions from USA & Europe, both the mortal, deadly & diabolical enemies of India and enfeeble, incapacitate & destroy India from within. We know that the USA Non-Aryan European American Protestant Christian Quaker President Richard Malhous Nixon, who sent the atom bombs carrying seventh naval fleet against India in the 1971 Bangladesh Liberation war, requested the plainly, straightly and contemptuously refusing China to launch a war against India, and finally ordered the assassinations of Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and Sanjay Gandh Jai Hind! Jai Azad Hind! OM!
