Pakistan must respect ICJ decision on Jadhav: Congress

Adviser to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has said that Islamabad will form a new team of lawyers to present Pakistan's stance vigorously in the Kulbushan Jadhav case that is before the International Court of Justice (ICJ). However, Pakistan's Punjab province law minister Rana Sanaullah said Islamabad would accept the decision of the International Court of Justice.

They say Pakistani government should have acted realising the fact that Kalbushan himself and the proofs against him could turn the tables on India about terrorism in Pakistan and change its perception on that count at the global level.

India had weaved its case around the fact that the neighboring country didn't give consular access to the prisoner. The UN court ordered Pakistan not to execute Jadhav.

"Pakistan should have provided Kulbhushan with the consular access from the start", said lawyer Yasser Latif Hamdani to DunyaNews. Raza said, in the first place, we should not reduce our pace by thinking that we have achieved victory.

In the subsequent proceedings, they say, this upper hand would continue to go along the Indian side to help it build a convincing case even without much material in hand. On April 10 this year, a Pakistani military court sentenced him to death.


The announcement by Aziz came amid criticism by experts and opposition leaders over the government's handling of the case at the International Court of Justice.

Jadhav was arrested on March 3, 2016, through a counter-intelligence operation in Balochistan's Mashkel area for his involvement in espionage and sabotage activities against Pakistan.

The Nation argued that the ICJ's have no jurisdiction in the case and its intevention was unnecessary as under a 2008 bilateral treaty, the right to consular access can be disregarded in the matters of national security.

Pakistan attended the hearing at the ICJ "because of its conviction that the only way to resolve all outstanding issues is through peaceful means", it said. However, India maintains that he was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy. Jadhav's case is the latest flash-point in the tensions between Pakistan and India.
