ICJ order is just a basic ruling, says Pakistani delegation

ICJ order is just a basic ruling, says Pakistani delegation

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Thursday ruled that Pakistan can not execute the death sentence given to former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav till it takes a final decision on the matter.

In major relief for India, the International Court of Justice on Thursday ordered Pakistan not to execute Jadhav till a final decision is taken.

Kulbhushan Jadva's friends expressed satisfaction and joy after the International Court of Justice (ICJ) stayed his execution by a Pakistan military court.

Ruling in favour of India, the Court asked Pakistan to keep it informed about the measures, including on consular access, taken by it in this connection.

The lawyer told the court that Jadhav was kidnapped in 2016 from Iran where he was pursuing his business after retiring from the Indian Navy, brought to Pakistan and was shown to have been arrested in Balochistan and presented as an alleged Indian spy.

He was convicted by a military court and sentenced to death.

Earlier, the ICJ stayed the execution and upheld India's right to have consular access to the former naval officer.

The decision of Kulbhushan Jadhav's death penalty was read out by the President of the ICJ, Ronny Abraham.

The ICJ ruling did not favor the arguments of either side but was meant to prevent Pakistan from taking any irrevocable steps before the court can decide whether it has jurisdiction in the case and, later, which side is right or wrong.

The verdict makes this one of the biggest diplomatic victories for India on the worldwide stage.

- The court notes that the access denied to Kulbhushan Jadhav appears to fall within its jurisdiction: International Court of Justice.

"The easy part of the case is over. the court will now consider in detail many of these issues during the merits". While not commenting specifically on the order to halt the execution, the office said in a statement that Jadhav "still has ample time to petition for clemency".

It rejected Pakistan's contention that a 2008 bilateral agreement between the two precluded the application of Vienna Convention.

At hearings on Monday, India called Jadhav's trial a "serious miscarriage of justice" because he wasn't allowed to see Indian diplomats or choose his own defense lawyer.

Asian neighbors Pakistan and India have a history of bitter relations, and Jadhav's death sentence has further strained ties.

Arguing for India, lead attorney Harish Salve had told the court that Pakistan had violated the Vienna Convention by convicting Jadhav, thus making it illegal. Prime Minister Narendra Modi "will leave no stone unturned to save" Jadhav, she tweeted.
