La Nia ha presentato il rapporto che accusa i marò. Nonostante le richieste del ministero degli esteri indiano che ha chiesto,dice lui e dicono i giornali indiani,pene più lievi ,la Nia ha presentato lunedi il rapporto al ministero degli interni e in base a questo rapporto d’accusa si chiede di perseguire i due marò,in base alla “Sua Act”che reprime la pirateria con la pena di morte. Queste notizie sono apparse oggi sull’Hindustan Times ,e al giornalista dell’Ansa che ha chiesto conferma alla Nia hanno risposto con un “no comment”.
Se la notizia venisse confermata,molti degli autori del ritorno in India dei nostri marò devono cominciare a preoccuparsi,per non aver rispettato le prerogative Costituzionali dei nostri due fucilieri della marina e insieme ai vecchi rappresentanti del governo appaiono anche i nuovi rappresentanti,che hanno pensato a raccontare le favolette,e forti di un accordo di condanna basato sul nulla si sono cullati della loro malafede non cacofonica come l’ha definita Mauro,ora dicessero al paese le cose come stanno,prima di dirle alla Procura,e facessero quello che fino a oggi non sono stati di fare,se hanno bisogno di consulenti chiedessero a noi cittadini l’importante e che non li fornisca il “Capo delle forze armate” Ha già fatto troppi danni.
Il gen. Fernando Termentini autore di un esposto alla Procura di Roma ha dichiarato :”LE ASSICURAZIONI DATE A DE MISTURA IL 21 MARZO NON VALEVANO NULLA COME HO PIU’ VOLTE SCRITTO E FORMALIZZATO ALLA PROCURA DI ROMA E QUESTA E’ LA CONFERMA CHE SPERIAMO SIA SOLO UNA NOTIZIA DESTINATA A RIMANERE TALE.
CHI LI HA ESTRADATI DEVE COMUNQUE COMINCIARSI A PREOCCUPARE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
E questo il testo dell’Hindustan Times
Fishermen killings: NIA seeks death for marines
“The National Investigation Agency (NIA), probing the case against two Italian Marines for killing two Kerala fishermen, has recommended that they be charged under an Act that mandates the death penalty.
The NIA sent a report seeking sanction for prosecution to the union ministry of home affairs (MHA) on Monday despite repeated entreaties from the ministry of external affairs (MEA) seeking a lesser charge. The MHA, NIA and the MEA confirmed to HT that the report seeking sanction for prosecution was received on Monday evening.
Earlier Salman Khurshid, the minister for external affairs had assured the Italian government that the two marines would not be charged with death penalty. Khurshid made this commitment after the marines went home on bail and the refused to return to India.
Two Italian marines, serving as security guards on an Italian-flagged oil tanker Enrica Lexie had shot dead two Indian fishermen about 20 nautical miles off Kerala in February last year.
The lawyers of the marines, Massimiliano Latorre and, say their clients mistook the fishermen for pirates and fired warning shots into the water. The two marines do not admit killing anyone or aiming directly at the fishing boat.
At the heart of the furious debate between the two ministries is a specific law that was passed in 2002. The ‘Suppression of Unlawful Acts Against Safety of Maritime Navigation and Fixed Platforms on Continental Shelf’ Act (SUA) is clear that if anyone causes death, then they will be awarded with a death penalty. This is stated in clause 3 (g) (i) of the Act which states: “causes death to any person shall be punished with death.”
The MEA is keen to resolve the issue and ensure that the marines are not prosecuted under the Act because the courts may award them death penalty.
This would be a violation of the commitment made by Khurshid, which they state, is as good as a sovereign guarantee.
But the NIA and the MHA differ and in the files that have gone back and forth, they state that the prerogative to decide the marines’ fate is left to the Indian courts.
“There is also a legal tangle here because the killing of the Kerala fishermen occurred at sea, just beyond India’s territorial claims which extend up to 12 nautical miles (NM),” a senior MHA official familiar with the issue told HT on the condition of anonymity.
India’s exclusive economic zone extends from 12 NM to 200 NM and the SU Act 2002 applies to this area. “Our logic is that by killing the fishermen, the marines committed an act that jeopardised navigation. Since this was death, they are liable to be charged with an Act that also mandates the death penalty,” an NIA official dealing with the case told HT.
Incidentally, the SUA Act also conforms to the UN conventions and laws of the sea. Sources in the NIA and MHA confirmed to HT that they will stand by their position on prosecuting the Italian marines under this Act.
After the report seeking sanction for prosecution was sent by NIA to the home ministry, the MEA has taken the position that they will “carefully take into account the legal position before taking any decision
