ICJ stays execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav

ICJ, Kulbhushan Jadhav

Hague : In a big win for India at the world court, the International Court of Justice on Thursday stayed the execution of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistan military court until further notice. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) today said that India should have been granted consular access to its national Kulbhushan Jadhav as per the Vienna Convention.

The ICJ asserted its jurisdiction over the case of Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death by Pakistan on charges of espionage and subversive activities. The circumstances of Jadhav's arrest remain disputed, ICJ president Ronny Abraham said while reading out his verdict.

The 11-judge bench of the UN's highest court is presenting its verdict two days after India and Pakistan gave their submissions on the 46-year-old former Indian Navy officer. PTI
