MEA terms ICJ judgement as an 'essential first step' in saving Jadhav

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj who piloted the strategy and Harish Salve who effectively argued the matter deserve special mention Jaitley said

Pakistan alleged the former Indian Navy officer was involved in spying and terror activities in Balochistan.

Congress leader and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad too welcomed the ICJ ruling in Jadhav's case and said, "Case against Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistan was a sham and was in gross violation of global law as his execution was ordered by a kangaroo court without consular access".

He opined that the ICJ's decision to grant consular access to the "Indian spy" was just an advice, and not a judgment.

"We are determined to pursue this case to its logical end", Pakistan's Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf Ali said in a statement on Thursday. "We thank the ICJ for delivering such a welcome ruling", Tulshidas Pawar, Mr Jadhav's childhood friend, told the Press Trust of India.

"In the annals of global law this judgment is a great victory of the rule of law", he said. There is an urgency in the case as Kulbhushan Jadhav was at risk of being executed.

It may be recalled that the International Court of Justice (ICJ) today ordered Pakistan not to execute Jadhav till the court announces its final decision in the case. "Now, the government of India must use this decision to see that Jadhav comes back home safely", Tewari said.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) holds a public hearing on March 6, 2017 in The Hague.

He said Pakistan's position was clear as it was a matter of national security.

Earlier, Justice Ronny Abraham of the ICJ read out the much-awaited verdict and asserted that Kulbhushan Jadhav's case was indeed debatable, and added that the ICJ had prime facie jurisdiction in the case.

However, India, after being denied consular access for 16th time, dragged Pakistan to the ICJ on May 8 for violating the Vienna Convention.

India counts the top United Nations court's ruling as a big win.

Islamabad said it attended the hearing out of its respect for the court and driven by the conviction that the challenge can be made via appearance and not by abstaining from the process. In addition, Pakistan attended because of its conviction that the only way to resolve all outstanding issues is through peaceful means.

The final order of the ICJ is expected in August. "As for Jadhav he should be provided a fair trial regardless", he said.
