After ICJ stay, Pak to change lawyers in Kulbhushan Jadhav case

The ICJ on Thursday allowed India's petition that Pakistan be directed not to execute Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was handed a death sentence by a Pakistani military court in April this year (See: ICJ stays Pak decision to execute Kulbhushan Jadhav).

"Pakistan shall take all measures at its disposal to ensure that Mr Jadhav is not executed pending the final decision in these proceedings", the court said.

As India celebrated ICJ's decision in Kulbhushan Jadhav case, Pakistan responded by saying that it does not accept the United Nations court's jurisdiction in matters of national security.

Meanwhile, Pakistan adviser on foreign affairs, Sartaj Aziz said Islamabad would decide about the consular access to Jadhav in the light of "national security dynamics".

Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav, an Indian former naval officer was arrested in March 2016, in the Pakistani province of Balochistan, where a separatist insurgency has raged for years. However, India maintains that he was abducted from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy.

The ICJ asserted its jurisdiction over the case of Jadhav.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has submitted a resolution in Punjab Assembly against the stay of International Court of Justice in an Indian spy's case.

Senior Advocate Harish Salve said India's case on Kulbhushan Jadhav has been emboldened and invigorated with the first round of victory at the International Court of Justice (ICJ). He added that the ICJ verdict had shown that the military court trial by Pakistan was a "charade", and that the neighbour had been completely "blown away" by it.

Replying to a volley of questions on India's possible response if Pakistan does not implement the ICJ order, Baglay said the order is binding on Pakistan.

"The real face of India will be exposed before the world", Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said.

A London-based Pakistani lawyer, Rashid Alam said Pakistan was "ill-prepared" and could not use the time properly to present its argument before the world court.

However, Pakistan Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf Ali's office in a statement indicated it would abide by the court's ruling while saying the interim order had "no bearing, whatsoever, on the final decision" related to the case.

In addition to this, the decision of the International Court of Justice was hailed by Information and Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu.

The last time India and Pakistan took a dispute to the ICJ was in 1999 when Islamabad protested against the downing of a Pakistani navy plane that killed 16 people.

Last week, after India challenged the death sentence, Pakistan was asked by the International Court to put it on hold. However, death sentences have rarely been issued in such cases.
