The visit of Italian Deputy Defence Minister Admiral (retd.) Giampaolo Di Paola here on Saturday night is his second to Kerala to meet Italian marines — Massimiliano Latore and Salvatore Girone — who are facing trial here in connection with the shooting to death of two Indian fishermen in February this year.

The Marines were arrested in February and are now out on bail. Mr. Di Paolo visited them on March 30 when they were in the Thiruvananthapuram Central Prison.

They moved a petition in the Kerala High Court here on Friday seeking relaxation of bail conditions to enable them to visit Italy for Christmas.
