Pakistan now forming new legal team for Jadhav's case in ICJ

The Nawaz Sharif government has come under attack from opposition leaders as well as experts, who allege that a weak case was put up by Pakistan's lawyers.

The case - a rare foray for the two nations into the worldwide courts - has highlighted the recent sharp upsurge in tensions between the nuclear-armed rivals.

Pakistan's Foreign Office said it did not accept the ICJ's jurisdiction in matters related to national security.

A former Indian navy officer-turned-businessman, Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran past year and arrested by Pakistan on espionage charges on March 3, 2016. New Delhi says that he was kidnapped from Iran, where he ran a business.

Pakistan contended that Jadhav's rights were not breached and that the court's order to stay his execution was unnecessary because it was not imminent.

"The decision to stay Kulbhushan Jadhav's execution pending ICJ hearing is unanimous", Judge Ronny Abraham, President of the Court, said. "Justice has been served and it is proven that Pakistan's courts are mere kangaroo courts and nothing else", one friend Sachin Kale said.

In its order indicating provisional measures, which was adopted unanimously, the Court also stated that the Pakistan Government shall inform it of all measures taken in implementation of that order.

Giving clear stance on Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's case, Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said it is an issue of Pakistan's national security and there will be no compromise on it.

Rulings by the U.N.'s highest court are final and binding on the countries involved.

India, which denies Jadhav is a spy, had urged the United Nations court to declare the verdict illegal and order Pakistan to release him.

Talking to the state-run Pakistan Television after the ruling was delivered, Zakaria said, “The real face of India will be exposed before the world.” Jadhav has confessed his crimes of sabotage, terrorism and subversion activities not only once but twice, he added.

Jadhav's case is the latest flashpoint in the tensions between Pakistan and India.

India argued that its case is exclusively based on the violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (VCCR) optional protocol.

Before the ICJ India can only argue that the route taken by Pakistan to arrive at a death sentence is violative of the principles of Vienna Convention which is a multilateral treaty, Harish Salve explains.

"It is appreciated that the World Court saw reason in Indian appeal and could see through the false Pakistan propaganda by rightly turning down their request to play the purported confessional video during hearing earlier", Azad said.
