India pushes for prosecution of Italy marines

Legal battle over marines accused of killing Indian fisherman continues, but family members say it is time to move on.

    India’s Supreme Court is deciding whether a pair of Italian marines accused of killing two Indian fishermen in 2012 will be tried under a tough anti-piracy law.

    Italy has recalled its ambassador to India after the court delayed the ruling in the case of the marines, who are in Indian custody.

    The marines have said they mistook the fishermen for pirates.

    Italy has been trying to stop the Indian government from prosecuting the marines, claiming the incident took place in international water, while India disputes these claims.

    Al Jazeera’s Faiz Jamil, reporting from Kollam in the southern state of Kerala, spoke to one of the deceased fishermen's families, who say that it is time to move on.
