“India mistook Parrots for Pigeons, and released them for a flight with a hope that they will return after relieving themselves.”

What can one expect from the land of the mafia, the original bullies and terrorists?! Its a simple matter, the Italian marines shot dead 2 fishermen. Its murder. They are lying if they say the marines mistook them for pirates. Has there been any previous occassion where pirates have attacked any ship in India waters? And their president shakes their hands - what a stupid and cheap F####r! The whole world now knows what a bunch of liars and murderers the Italians are.

Two pieces on this imbroglio.

The first discusses the legal validity of Italy's claims with reference to UNCLOS. The second is an opinion piece which links the release of the marines to further Italian silence regarding AgustaWestland.

Italian gunmen: UNCLOS misread - Dr. S Faizi (Vijayvaani)

OFF Limits -Seema Mustafa (The Statesman)

Operation Bhardwaj was successful in saving Ottawio Quatrochhi. What better code name or heading shall we give to this expedition.

The Italian ambassador (in effect, the Italian government) gave an assurance to the apex court of India that the marines under custody would return after voting in the elections at home. He reneged on that pledge. The guy (Italian ambassador) needs to be tried for lying to and cheating the highest court of this land.

"The Italian ambassador (in effect, the Italian government) gave an assurance to the apex court of India that the marines under custody would return after voting in the elections at home."

The key part of the assurance is "..would return after voting in the elections..". So if, for any reason whatsoever, the marines have not voted, the envoy is legally safe ?

Reminds me of a story : Guy A has borrowed money from guy B. B is after A to get his money back but A is evading B. Finally B catches A in a saloon ready to get his beard shaved. A promises to return the money after getting his beard shaved. B agrees. A gets up and walks away without getting his beard shaved, and remains unshaved to this day.

That reminds me of Shylock of "The Merchant of Venice" (Italy again!) who focused on each word of the bond and not on its spirit.
