ICJ decision today in Jadhav case

Pakistan Will Form New Legal Team For Kulbhushan Jadhav Case

Pakistan Will Form New Legal Team For Kulbhushan Jadhav Case

Earlier on Thursday, the ICJ stayed the execution and upheld India's right to have consular access to the former naval officer who has been declared spy by the Pakistan and been awarded death sentence for espionage.

Hamdani told DunyaNews that the ICJ took up India's matter on an urgent basis because Pakistan hadn't assured it that it wouldn't "hang Jadhav before the hearing is over".

India moved the ICJ on 8 May against Pakistan for refusing consular access to Jadhav and for violating the Vienna Convention on consular relations.

The court has asked Pakistan to give consular access to Jadhav, who was arrested in March past year in the country's southern province, a few kilometers (miles) from the Iranian border. And what's so important and surprising to know about this case is that eminent lawyer Harish Salve charged us Re 1 as his fee for this case. Salve's strategy saw him, in an emergency hearing on May 15, requesting the ICJ to order Islamabad to suspend Jadhav's execution.

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.

Pakistani representative Mohammad Faisal on Monday showed judges a copy of an Indian passport he said Jadhav was carrying at the time of his detention, which bore the name Hussein Mubarak Patel, calling it an "obvious indication of covert and illegal activity". The verdict a matter of great relief for people of the country, he said.

Responding to a question, Rohatgi asserted that the ICJ's interim verdict on Thursday was binding on both India and Pakistan.

Castellano asked Cloud Computing to go and he responded, rallying through the stretch and catching Classic Empire at the wire. Cloud Computing , who finished third in the Grade II Wood Memorial, won for the second time in just four career starts.

The court asked Pakistan to take "all measures at its disposal" to ensure that Jadhav is not executed till a final decision is taken.

A Pakistani military court sentenced him to death in April.

Jadhav was arrested in March 2016 in the southwestern province of Balochistan on charges of being an Indian spy and fueling unrest across the troubled province.

Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria said Pakistan had already made it clear it doesn't accept the United Nations' highest court's jurisdiction in national security matters.

India and Pakistan have fought three wars over Kashmir since their independence from Britain in 1947.

Yes, the ICJ has jurisdiction Article I of the Optional Protocol to the Vienna Convention states that the Court has jurisdiction over "d$3 isputes arising out of the interpretation or application of the [Vienna] Convention".

Jadhav reportedly joined India's prestigious National Defense Academy in 1987 and was commissioned as an engineer in the Indian Navy in 1991.
