International Court of Justice Stays Death Sentence of Kulbhushan Yadav in Pakistan


IndiaNewsonWeb: 10 May, 2017, In the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, India has won a major diplomatic victory. The International Justice Court (ICJ) located in The Hague, Netherlands, has banned Jadhav's execution of conviction. India had appealed on May 8 in this court against the Pakistani military's decision. However, there has been no statement from Pakistan on this.

In a release issued by the International Court, it has been said that India had accused Pakistan of violating the Vienna Treaty on this issue in Pakistan. It was also stated in the appeal filed by India that Kulbhushan Jadhav was not given a chance to keep his side nor was he allowed to meet the High Commission officials of India.

It is said that ICJ President Roni Abraham has written a letter to the Government of Pakistan and said that he should take action in such a way so that any court order issued in this matter could be possible. In an appeal made to the ICJ, India has accused Pakistan of bitter violation of the Vienna Conference on diplomatic relations and has emphasized that Jadhav was abducted from Iran. After being retired from the Indian Navy, Jadhav had gone in connection with the business in Iran. Although Pakistan claims that its security forces arrested Jadhav on March 3, 2016 from Balochistan. On the appeal of India, the ICJ has stayed the execution of Jadhav's death sentence.

Pakistan's arrest of former Indian Navy commander Jadhav appeared on March 29, 2016. Pakistan claimed that Jadhav was working to spread terrorism in Balochistan and Karachi. At the same time, India had claimed that Jadhav was abducted. After the arrest, the Indian High Commission had sought permission to meet him several times. But Pakistan did not allow all international laws to be circumvented. On April 11, 2017, the sudden news came that Pakistan's military court had sentenced him to death.

According to Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, the International Court has ruled in accordance with Article 74 of Para 4 of the Rule of Court. He told that he informed Jadhav's mother about this decision. According to Sushma, senior lawyer Harish Salve is lobbying for India in this case.

India had adopted a tough stance in this issue. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had said in Parliament that India will go to any extent to redeem Jadhav. The issue was a great deal of diplomatic tension between the two countries. India had sought permission to meet Jadhav several times by summoning the Pakistani high commissioner. The Government of India was also looking into the options available in Pakistan's legal system to save Jadhav.
