Italian term or phrase: non rientrava nel territorio di sua competenza
Contesto:

Dopo che si fu separato dal resto dall'armata con cui era arrivato, cercò dapprima di raggiungere il Mar Rosso, ma poi ignorando gli ordini, si diresse verso il Golfo Persico, dove conquistò una serie di piazzeforti, compresa la più importante di tutte, Hormuz. Cominciò anche qui a costruire una fortezza, ma dovette abbandonarla perché gli altri capitani e lo stesso viceré Francisco de Almeida protestarono, perché Hormuz non rientrava nel territorio di sua competenza.

Molte Grazie,

Barbara
