Pakistan govt under fire for its handling of Jadhav's case

Share

In a provisional win for India, the International Court of Justice stayed the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav, a retired Indian naval officer whom Pakistan arrested past year and convicted of espionage.

In a major boost to India, which has moved the UN's highest judicial body against the death sentence, the ICJ instructed Pakistan to take all "necessary measures at its disposal" to ensure that Jadhav was not executed pending a final decision by it.

The ruling triggered criticism of the Pakistan Foreign Office (FO) for its "poor handling" and also for its choice of UK-based Khawar Qureshi, who represented Pakistan's case before the ICJ.

As India celebrated ICJ's decision in Kulbhushan Jadhav case, Pakistan responded by saying that it does not accept the United Nations court's jurisdiction in matters of national security.

The ICJ has not yet ruled on India's main argument that Kulbhushan Jadhav's trial in Pakistan was in violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Access.

Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj tweeted, "The ICJ order has come as a great relief to the family of Kulbhushan Jadhav and people of India".

His statement was in conflict with that of the foreign office which said Pakistan does not accept ICJ's jurisdiction in matters related to the national security.

Rashid also submitted a resolution in the Assembly secretariat on Thursday condemning the ICJ decision on the execution of Indian spy.

A lawyer for Pakistan added that a bilateral agreement allows either country to decide on consular access in cases involving "political or security" issues. The court claimed that Jadhav was an Indian intelligence agent and a threat to Pakistan.

"The decision to stay Jadhav's execution pending ICJ hearing is unanimous", said ICJ President Ronny Abraham.

For the Boston Celtics, trading Isaiah Thomas is not the answer
That's some prestigious company for the last pick of the draft. "It's always, 'He's good...and he's 5'9", Thomas said. The early indication is that Boston plans to keep the pick, likely eyeing Fultz as the first selection in the draft.

Hailing the verdict, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said it is a victory for India's stand.

Pakistani analyst Zahid Hussain said the ICJ order is "morally" binding on Pakistan, but not legally. However, media outlets in Pakistan are describing the ICJ order as a "setback" and even blamed poor preparation for its defeat at world Court.

Its rulings are binding.

Pakistani representatives, however, told the court Jadhav had confessed to having been sent by India "to wage terror on the innocent civilians and infrastructure of Pakistan".
