Kulbhushan Jadhav's mercy plea with Pakistan army chief: What happens next? Decision On Kulbhushan Jadhav's Mercy Plea Now With Pakistan Army Chief

Retired Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav's clemency appeal has been rejected by the Pakistan Army's military appellate court, ANI tweeted. the appeal will now be reviewed by Islamabad's chief of army staff. Kulbhushan Jadhav, 46, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military tribunal in April on charges of espionage and terrorism. He was later awarded death sentence by a Pakistani military court. "All evidence and case proceedings against him (Jadhav) are being examined by the army chief, and he will take a decision on the basis of merit and justice".

"They (pakistan) can not execute Jadhav as of now, because they made a promise before the ICJ that as long as the proceedings are continuing, they can not execute".

India had then moved the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against the death penalty and in its verdict on May 18 had restrained Pakistan from executing Jadhav. India, on the other hand, had said Jadhav was an Indian national who was captured by Pakistani army.

Jadhav is eligible to appeal for clemency to the Army chief under Pakistan's law, and if his plea is rejected, he can subsequently appeal the Pakistan president for the same. General Bajwa, before whom a mercy petition was filed last month, will decide the case on merit, ISPR, the media wing of the Pak army, said in a statement.
