The return home of the Estonian ship guards recently freed from prison in India is increasingly certain, as the more important authorities have already given their consent for the men to leave India.

ERR correspondent Tarmo Maiberg told ERR's radio news that Ministry of Foreign Affairs Undersecretary Annely Kolk spoke with the Advocate General of Tamil Nadu in India on Monday, who confirmed that there would be no obstacles on his part to the men leaving for Estonia.

"The state government also fundamentally granted permission to leave the country, which means that the bigger and more important authorities have given their consent for the men to leave," he explained.

According to Maiberg, the last bureaucratic step lay ahead on Monday — getting the men's exit visas stamped.
