Italy Marines
Kollam (Ker), May 11: A local court today rejected the bail application of the two Italian marines of merchant ship 'Enrica Lexie', who have been charged with shooting dead two Indian fishermen off Kerala coast in Feb, and extended their judicial remand for another 14 days.

The marines, Latore Massimiliano and Salvatore Girone, were brought from the Central Prison in Thiruvananthapuram and produced before the First Class Judicial Magistrate AK Goapakumar on expiry of the remand period.

The naval guards were arrested on Feb 19 and charged with murder of fishermen Valentine Jalastine and Ajesh Binki who took to the sea from Neendakara in Kollam.

The accused were in police custody for the first 14 days and had been lodged in a special cell in the central prison since Mar 5 after the court remanded them to judicial custody.
