Pakistan can not execute Kulbhushan Jadhav till the court rules on case: ICJ


It added that it indeed has jurisdiction in the case, superceding a 2008 agreement between India and Pakistan. Pakistan will stand totally exposed in its hypocricy and for the premeditated murder of an innocent person.

In addition, Pakistan attended because of its conviction that the only way to resolve all outstanding issues is through peaceful means, the statement added.

2 pm IST: The ICJ has in quite a few instances cancelled death sentences. And the trial was a "kangaroo trail".

Since the verdict is out and has caused disappointment in Pakistan, observers in the country say the jurisdiction argument was "weak and damaging".

The spokesman pointed out that there exists a bilateral pact on consular access between the two countries since 2008.

India told the ICJ that immediate steps must be taken to stop Pakistan's from carrying out the death sentence of former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav.

Pakistan had argued that it didn't provide Consular access to Jadhav as India refused to provide any inputs on him. Harish Salve, who is representing Jadhav at the ICJ, has told the court that India was also not granted consular access to him despite repeated attempts. It also accused India of using the worldwide body for political theatrics.

The International Court of Justice will deliver its verdict on the death sentence of Kulbhushan Jadhav today.

Pakistan argued that Jadhav's rights weren't breached and that the court didn't need to issue an urgent order to stay his execution because it wasn't imminent.

The ICJ also denied permission to Pakistan to play a purported "confessional" video of Jadhav at the public hearing in Hague.

Actress Mallika Sherawat also turned heads on Day 1 as she walked the red carpet in a white Georges Hobeika couture. Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her daughter Aaradhya arrived at Cannes in style on Thursday.

On the question of consular access to Jadhav, Baglay reiterated that India had already made 16 requests, and said it was up to Pakistan to decide on them.

Jadhav was arrested in the restive southwestern Pakistani province of Balochistan in March 2016 and Pakistani officials claim he has confessed to spying for Indian intelligence services.

The case will take months or years to settle at the United Nations' highest judicial body, so judges issued the order to ensure Jadhav is not executed before the case ends.

Senior Supreme Court lawyer Siddharth Luthra said while the judgement "cannot be enforced the way domestic court judgements can", India could also ask for sanctions against Pakistan.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will pronounce its verdict on the Kulbhushan Jadhav case on Thursday, three days after it heard arguments presented by India and Pakistan.
