Italy on Monday assured India that the two marines, facing murder charges in Kerala, will be back in the country within the first week of January as per the court order. “You can be assured that they will be back. The Republic of Italy has given its word in writing and we will honour that,” a senior Italian government official told PTI here amid reports of uncertainty over their return.

Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone were allowed by the Kerala High Court this month to visit their family in Italy for Christmas. The two marines were arrested from Italian vessel ‘Enrica Lexie’ on February 19 for shooting down two Indian fishermen off Alapuzha coast on February 15.

The Kerala High Court permitted them to go home for two weeks while asking them to give a bank guarantee of Rs 6 crore and imposing stringent conditions. Italian government sources said the issue of marines is “highly sensitive and sentimental” and they were looking forward to early settlement of case.
