Enrica lexie commandos get bail
HIGH COURT ISSUES BAIL TO LESTORE MAXIMILIANO AND SILVA TORE JIRON UNDER STRICT GUIDELINES.
Kochi: The two Italian seamen arrested in connection with the murder of  Indian fishermen (Enrica Lexie shootout) will get bail after more than four months of imprisonment.The marines should provide a personal security of one Crore Indian rupees and equivalent security from two Indian citizens to avail the bail.The court has briefed the police to order the port authorities and coast guard to ensure that the Europeans doesnt leave India.Thier passports should be handed over before Kollam Magistrate court.The Italian safety guards have to report daily to the police commissioner and stay within 10 miles of his office.
           Earlier the court had severely cricticized the family members of the two victims, Ajeesh Pink and Gelestin, for bringing the case this much far and trying for a compromise outside court in the final stages.They will have to pay a fine of 10,000 Indian rupees towards court expenses.The court also pointed out that as the murder of two innocent seamen at sea without any provocation doesnt relate to the safe passage of a merchant vessel in international waters, the article 97 of SOLAS would not be applicable in the situation.The commandos will not get diplomatic privileges as it was not a military activity.Eventhough they are temporarily released, the case is nowhere near a permanent settlement.In the coming days we could expect much more drama for sure.
