New Delhi: Italian marine Massimiliano Latorre on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court for extension of his stay in Italy on health grounds. Latorre, along with his colleague, Sergeant Salvatore Girone, was accused of killing two Indian fishermen off the Kerala coast, apparently mistaking them for pirates in February 2012. The Marines were serving as security personnel on Italian oil tanker MT Enrica Lexie and were crossing the Indian Ocean at that time. The apex court September 12, 2014, had allowed Latorre to go back to Italy for his treatment, recovery and rehabilitation for four months, after he suffered a brain stroke. The SC, in December 2014, refused the pleas of murder accused, Massimiliano Latorre, seeking extension of his stay in Italy on health grounds and his fellow marine permission to travel there for Christmas, leading them to withdraw their applications.
