ICJ suspends Jadhav’s death sentence

ICJ suspends Jadhav’s death sentence

International Court of Justice (ICJ) provisionally suspended the death sentence of Kulbhushan Jadhav on Thursday in The Hague
The verdict was announced by 11-member bench led by the President of the Court Justice Ronny Abraham. The ICJ also rejected Pakistan’s claim that the case does not fall within the jurisdiction of the court.
The Judge ordered Pakistan not to execute Jadhav till the final verdict of the case is announced.
The hearing was conducted on Monday after India’s petition demanding stay order of Pakistan’s death sentence to Jadhav.
Pakistani counsel, Khawar Qureshi presented the stance in the ICJ contending that according to Vienna Convention the case cannot be heard in the ICJ.
India had expressed fear that Pakistan may execute Mr Jadhav even before the UN court decides on its appeal. In the hearing, the government accused Pakistan of “egregious violations of the Vienna convention” by denying him access to legal counsel and consular access, and refusing to reveal the charges or evidence against him.
The government wants the world court to decide whether Pakistan has broken the convention and international human rights law.
