New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday asked the central government to respond to Italian marine Massimiliano Latorre's plea seeking to go back to his country for two months following brain stroke suffered by him recently.
The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice RM Lodha, while asking the central government to respond, set the next date of hearing on 12 September.
Meanwhile, the court has relaxed its order mandating both the Italian marines to report to the Chanakyapuri police station once a week, permitting Latorre exemption for two weeks starting from 31 August.
Two Italian marines are facing charges of murder for killing two Indian fishermen off the Kerala coast, suspecting them to be sea pirates in 2012.
