Initially it appeared as if the UN Court’s ruling on the Italian Marine had gone against India and allows him to return home but when details began to emerge, it was clear that the ruling was actually in India’s favour. The UN tribunal has ruled that the marine would have to appear in front of a Supreme Court nominated authority and the apex court will decide on the frequency of such appearances and if established that the marine was caught in Indian waters, then he would have to return to India and face trial. Basically this means that Salvatore Girone’s return to Italy does not translate to his being cleared of charges.
