Lok Adalat asked to settle compensation for killed fishermen

Kerala,Immigration/Law/Rights, Fri, 20 Apr 2012 IANS

Kochi, April 20 (IANS) A vacation bench of the Kerala High Court Friday referred the compensation claim, filed by families of the two Indian fishermen killed by two Italian Marines in February, to the Lok Adalat.


The court did this after Italian authorities and the two fishermen's families agreed to reach an out-of-court settlement.



The case will now come up before the Lok Adalat here on Tuesday.



Two fishermen, Ajesh Binki, 25, and Gelastine, 45, were apparently mistaken as pirates and shot dead by Marines aboard a cargo vessel Feb 15, off Alappuzha.



The marines, Latorre Massimillano and Salvatore Girone, were picked up from the vessel and sent to jail Feb 20 on murder charges by a court in Kollam. They are now lodged in the central prison in Thiruvananthapuram.



Gelastine's wife and children and the sisters of the other victim had filed a petition in the high court, demanding a compensation of Rs.1 crore each.
