New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday permitted Italian marine Massimilano Latorre to go back home to Italy for his treatment for four months.
The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice RM Lodha said the order would be effective only after the Italian marine has filed an "unequivocal and unambigous undertaking" on his return to India upon the completion of four months.
Latorre has moved the court for permission to go back to his country after he suffered a brain stroke on August 31 and was admitted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. In his plea, Latorre had pleaded the Supreme Court to allow him to return to Italy for two months for his "more rapid and complete recovery".
He has already been exempted by the apex court from appearing before the Chanakyapuri Police Station once a week as a condition of his bail.
Apart from Lattore, Italian marine Salvatore Girone is also accused of killing two Kerala fishermen off Kerala coast on February 15, 2012.
