Nations as bullies

Mistaking them for pirates, the Italian marines opened fire on two Indian fisherman and killed them- in Indian territorial waters. They were arrested, charged of murder and released when the Italian Ambassador stood guarantor on their bail. They were allowed to go back home for Christmas, and then again to vote in the General Elections. But now the Italian Government refuses to send them back, despite a written assurance from the Ambassador that they would return to face trial in Indian courts. Should the Ambassador now be arrested and tried for contempt of court?
When will nations stop acting as bullies?

A Drabble is a story told in exactly 100 words.
