Pakistan Must Not Execute Kulbhushan Jadhav Until The Final Verdict: ICJ


Kulbhushan Jadhav

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague said that “Pakistan must ensure that Kulbhushan Jadhav is not executed until a final decision is taken on his case.”

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

On May 15, New Delhi had called on UN's top court to order Islamabad to suspend the execution of the former navy officer, held guilty by a Pakistani military court of spying.

In March 2016, Jadhav was arrested, and Pakistani officials claimed that he has confessed to have been spying for Indian intelligence services. Hence, in April 2017, Jadhav was sentenced to death.
