Italian envoy lost our trust: SC
Posted on Mon , 18 Mar '13
The Supreme Court on Monday ordered Italy's Ambassador to India Daniele Mancini not to leave the country till April 2, when the next hearing into the killing of two Kerala fishermen allegedly by two Italian marines is scheduled. The apex court further indicated that all authorities should take appropriate steps on the order restraining the Italian envoy from leaving the country. Mancini, meanwhile, told the apex court that he had complete immunity under the Vienna Convention. The apex court said that it would not accept nor does it believe the ambassador's statement, as he had lost trust of the court by going back on his word.
