Italian ambassador has 'lost' immunity, says Indian court
Diplomatic row continues after Rome says marines won't return18 March, 10:40
The Italian government recently said the marines, who face charges of homicide, will not return, sparking a furious reaction from New Delhi.
Rome has always denied that India has jurisdiction over the matter, as the incident took place in international waters.
Italian Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi said last week that the decision to not return the pair was legitimate and Italy had a strong case which it wanted to put to independent arbitration.
An earlier deal, which allowed the marines to return to Italy for Christmas, was respected by both governments and was seen as a positive step - as well as a sign of goodwill - towards a diplomatic solution. On Monday the India Supreme Court adjourned Mancini's case until April 2 and said he was not to leave the country before then.
