    India`s decision on marines `fruit of Italian firmness`: Italy

    Rome: Hours after India decided not to prosecute two of its marines accused of killing Indian fishermen under the stringent anti-piracy SUA law, Italy today said the decision was the "fruit of Italian firmness".

    The decision not to "apply the anti-terrorism law was the fruit of Italian firmness", Italian Premier Matteo Renzi said after chairing a meeting of a task force on the marines.

    Italy would continue to push to have the case assessed by international bodies, Renzi was quoted as saying by Italian news agency ANSA. Earlier in the day in New Delhi, the Indian government told the country's Supreme Court that marines Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone accused of killing two Indian fishermen off Kerala coast in 2012 will not be prosecuted under the SUA law that attracts death penalty.

    The marines shot dead two fishermen whom they believed to be pirates, sparking diplomatic tensions between the two countries.

    Earlier this month, Italy had petitioned the UN over the trial of its two marines in India under a strict anti-piracy law. However, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon asked Rome to resolve the issue bilaterally.

    Meanwhile, European Parliament Speaker Martin Schulz today said India should respect international law in the case of the marines.

    India should "fully and promptly" uphold laws and "especially" the UN Law of the Sea Convention, Schulz told the Members of the European Parliament. "I share Italy's concerns on the longueurs and delays in the case."

    Seems Italians are asking for it......................... A good diplomatic spanking.

    AW case and India getting back the money might have unseated them.

    Well, one cannot have different parameters for Italians and others.

    I am yet to learn of Indian prisoners in foreign jail being allowed to return to India on parole to celebrate Diwali or Id or even Christmas.

    I wonder how come they were given this privilege in the first place that they have the temerity to demand it as a right.

    Who cares about Italy?

    Europe is entering recession. They need us more than we need them.

    Though I will agree that it would be painful for Sonia Gandhi that India should ignore the consequences by cocking the snook at the country of her birth.
