The president of the ICJ Ronny Abraham announces the decision on the case of “stay on execution of Indian spy” Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav.
The chief judge declared that, according to article one of the International Court of Justice, they could hear the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav and “Pakistan should take all measures to ensure that Mr. Jadhav is not executed till the final decision of this court,”
The court also added that “India has the right to seek consular access for Jadhav,”
It is evident that arguments of both the countries are different. And there are disputes between both the countries on the issue of counselor access, the chief judge maintained. The highest court gave a partial decision and maintained stay on the execution of Indian spy and asked both the parties to provide more proofs on the matter.
However, the ICJ bench declared that India remained unable to convince the court regarding innocence of Kulbhushan Jadhav. India lacks evidence, and the issue cannot be decided on urgent basis.
The International Court of Justice based in Hague Netherlands started emergency hearing on Indian request to seize the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav. India had argued in the court that Pakistan has violated the provisions of Vienna convention, and rejected requests for Councilor access.
It is important to remember that Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian spy was arrested by Pakistani forces from Baluchistan and he had confessed of terrorist activities in Pakistan.
