On Kulbhushan Jadhav Case, Pakistan May Change Lawyers Amid Criticism At Home

19 May 2017, 10:05 | Rodolfo Wallace

After the International Court of Justice on Thursday stayed the execution by Pakistan of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, Pakistan has chose to replace the lawyers that represented it at The Hague, media reports in Islamabad said.

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.

"Pakistan's security is so important and we have to maintain our fundamental sovereign right", Sartaj Aziz said.

The ICJ has also asked Pakistan to grant India consular access in Kulbhushan Jadhav death penalty case.

A retired Pakistani judge had also told Dawn newspaper that the decision taken by the court was "alarming" since the "ICJ does not have jurisdiction".

Deadline for Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav to file an appeal against his death sentence, which was awarded by an military court, is ending today (Friday), Samaa news reported. Pakistan said legal process is ongoing and that it had met its obligations under the Vienna treaty on consularrelations. Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu also termed the verdict as a "major victory for India".

Manchester United to land Oblak if De Gea leaves for Real Madrid
Jan Oblak reportedly has a £85m buyout clause in his contract with Atletico Madrid. With this in mind, United themselves have been looking for replacements for De Gea.


A Pakistani military court sentenced Jadhav to death last month.

Rulings by the court are final and binding on the countries involved.

Terming the ICJ decision [temporarily staying Kulbhushan Jadhav's execution] a "setback", Shah said the government's negligence is evident. As such, India has the rights of consular access as outlined in the article concerned. The court claimed that Jadhav was an Indian intelligence agent and a threat to Pakistan. She tweeted saying, "We are grateful to Mr.Harish Salve for presenting India's case so effectively before ICJ". It lodged a case against Islamabad earlier this month, accusing the Pakistanis of violating the Vienna Convention by failing to provide him with consular access, as well as breaking worldwide human rights law.

India approached the global court on May 8 against Pakistan, accusing it of violating the Vienna Convention as Islamabad had rejected 16 requests by New Delhi seeking consular access.

Mr Jadhav was "an innocent Indian national, who, incarcerated in Pakistan for more than a year on concocted charges has been held incommunicado... and faces imminent execution", India told the tribunal.

"ICJ has only granted formal stay on the death sentence of Jadhav", he maintained.
