EU 'disappointed' at India marines postponement (see previous).

(ANSA) - Brussels, February 18 - The European Union is "disappointed" that India has "again" put off a decision on whether to press terror charges against two Italian marines accused of killing two Indian fishermen two years ago, a spokesperson for High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton said Tuesday.

Speaking after the New Delhi supreme court postponed a ruling until Monday, the spokesperson reaffirmed that "the application of the antiterrorism law would be inappropriate".
