The court said the matter would be listed Friday by which time the centre would respond to the marines' plea.

The petition seeking permission to go back home for four weeks has been moved by Italian marines Chief Master Sergeant Massimilano Latorre and Sergeant Salvatore Girone.

The two Italian marines on board the Italian cargo vessel Enrica Lexie had shot dead two Indian fishermen on 15 February last year, suspecting them to be pirates.
