Jadhav case a rare one at the ICJ

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan

"If the Army chief said that he provided the lawyer for the Jadhav case and then any criticism directed at him is baseless", Geo News quoted Sadiq, as saying.

Overall, the ICJ stay on Jadhav's execution is a political victory for India, one that casts aspersions on Pakistan's goodwill and the rule of law in that country.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is expected to pronounce its verdict on the Kulbhushan Jadhav case on 18 May, three days after it heard arguments presented by India and Pakistan.

In the judgment released by the ICJ at The Hague on Thursday, the tribunal asked Pakistan to take all "necessary measures at its disposal" to ensure that Jadhav was not executed pending a final decision by it.

We are expecting the ICJ would announce a date for the next hearing within a week or so, he maintained.

Asked if the government has information on Jadhav's location in Pakistan, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Gopal Baglay said, "As of today, the Pakistan government has not provided any information about Jadhav's condition or where he has been kept there".

Meanwhile, eyebrows have been raised in legal circles on both sides of the border because of Bhandari's comments to an Indian newspaper describing the ICJ's order as a "hugely satisfying interim pronouncement which is a great diplomatic victory for India".

A screen that popped up on infected computers demanded $300 to $600 in bitcoin as payments to unlock important files. A "simultaneous cyber attack" worldwide by the "vicious virus" had caused deep concern in global society, it said.

Another PTI leader, Shirin Mazari, accused the Pakistan government of deliberately playing a game to advance Indian interests.

Aziz said a decision to provide consular access to Jadhav is yet to be made. He said the ICJ decision was an outcome of the Sharif-Jindal talks.

Pakistan is yet to give answers to the questions about consular access.

Speaking to Geo News, Qureshi said unfortunately politicians had failed to refrain themselves from doing political point-scoring over the issue.

Global law expert Ahmer Bilal Soofi was of the view that Pakistan should prepare for the second phase of this case, which was more important because it would be contested on merit and would provide Pakistan the chance to document India's intervention inside Pakistan through Jadhav.

He said the rights claimed by India on the merits were plausible because they concerned consular access to a person who was indisputably an Indian national, who had been arrested, tried and convicted in a foreign country.
