Apex court frowns on Italian ship case developments

April 30th, 2012 - 8:27 pm ICT by IANS  

New Delhi, April 30 (IANS) The Supreme Court Monday took exception to the Kerala High Court affixing its stamp of approval to an agreement between the Italian government and the kin of two Indian fishermen killed by two Italian marines, thereby capping all legal proceedings related to the Feb 15 incident.

“It is astonishing,” the court said while hearing a petition by the owners of Italian ship Enrica Lexie challenging the high court order detaining the vessel. The marines were on this ship when they mistook the fishermen to be pirates and shot them dead off Alappuzha in Kerala.
