"COAS is looking each aspect of Kulbhushan Jadhav's appeal and will decide on merits", Pakistan army said. Now the Chief General of Pakistani Army reviewing the case proceedings. However, Pakistan can not execute Jadhav since a stay has been ordered by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) after India approached the international body for justice.

"Pakistan is trying to hoodwink the International Court of Justice to the extent that is possible". "The decision to stay Jadhav's execution pending ICJ hearing is unanimous", Judge Ronny Abraham, President of the Court, had said.
