Italy moves the International Tribunal for the Law of Seas (ITLOS) in the marines case
ITLOS is one of the four forums available for such International disputes.
Through this forum, Italy wants India to refrain from taking any judicial or administrative measures against the Italian marines.
India will be represented by the Additional Solicitor General P.S. Nariman at the tribunal and will be contending that India alone has the jurisdiction in this case since it happened within India’s territorial limits.
India will also contend that Italy did not exhaust all available remedies, which is a requirement before approaching ITLOS.
