Marines case: Govt deposits Rs 10 crore received from Italy in SC | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: The Union government has deposited in the Supreme Court Rs 10 crore paid by Italy as compensation to the families of the two Kerala fishermen who were shot dead in 2012 by two Italian Marines aboard the Enrica Lexie ship, in lieu of closure of criminal cases against the two navy personnel in India.
Though the Union government on April 9 had sought closure of the proceedings involving the two Marines in the SC while promising to deposit the Rs 10 crore to be paid by the Italian government within three days, the money could not be deposited even when the SC took up the case on April 19.
The SC office report said the Centre deposited Rs 10 crore on April 26. The SC on April 19 had said it would take over disbursal of the compensation amount, which is over and above the money already paid by the Italian government to the kin during pendency of the cases in India. An SC bench of Justices Indira Banerjee and M R Shah will hear the case on Friday.
