Too many people have lashed out at our marine riflemen Latorre and Girone, taking their guilt for granted and shouting out the justicialist slogan “pay for your mistakes”. But some witnesses and ballistic findings have made the accusatory castle crumble; Yet, even after all those things have emerged from the examination of the Indian documentation recorded at the Court of Hamburg, no Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry has been appointed.
“The mistakes to pay” are not those of the two marines, but the obvious ones of the governments who failed over the years to take face the situation firmly and protect our soldiers. There is a clear intent to defer and take time as it happened with International Arbitration, which began more than 24 months later than it should have.
This is an inexcusable deadlock – as it was pointed out by the General Fernando Termentini, military adviser at the time when everything happened (the arrest – at the hand of the Indian police – of the two riflemen of the Italian navy who were aboard the Italian oil tanker Enrica Lexie, as nuclei of military protection , and who were accused of having killed two fishermen on Feb. 15, 2012 off the coast of Kerala, a state in south- western India). These delays encourage different assumptions, such as the existence of political, personal, and lobby interests to protect.
Lack of commitment to a more accurate search for truth may lead to the suspicion that the aim is avoiding the discovery of uncomfortable truths or acts, which unequivocally demonstrate that there have been clear violations of the Constitution in the way this case has been managed. Here the phrase ” pay for your mistakes” would work fine as well… but in this case nobody deviates it.
Not having done so yet represents a delay that cannot be justified. Besides, it is in contradiction with the established practice in our Parliament, ready to appoint commissions for facts that are much more relevant that this one, to assess problems that are consolidated, such as, for example, remaining on the subject of military, the problems with DU.
