BIG SETBACK for India in #ItalianMarines case. The Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague has given its decision saying that the Italian marines - Massimiliano Latorre & Salvatore Girone will not be tried in India. Italy has been asked to begin criminal charges against them.
India has been arguing from day one that Italian marines should be tried in India as they were in Indian waters when they shot two fishermen off the Kerala coast on February 15, 2012. @NIA_India had even readied a chargesheet against them.
And remember, all those claiming it to be a victory - “compensation” was never our primary argument. Our argument was that they have committed a murder and will be tried in India. Crores have been spent in fighting this case.
