Kulbhushan Jadhav case: Pakistan to submit reply to ICJ today

NEW DELHI: Pakistan is expected to submit its reply today to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, sources told Pakistan’s Geo News.

Jadhav, an Indian national, was convicted of espionage by a Pakistani military court and in April sentenced to death. On May 18, the ICJ ordered Pakistan to halt his execution, after India approached the Hague-based international court.

India has consistently denied Pakistan’s allegation that Jadhav is a spy working for the Research and Analysis Wing.

Jadhav was arrested by Pakistan, allegedly from Balochistan, in March 2016.

Last week, Pakistan agreed to allow a meeting of Jadhav with his mother and wife on December 25. Pakistan’s foreign office spokesman Mohammad Faisal said a staff member from the Indian high commission will also be present during the meeting.

Pakistan previously repeatedly denied India consular access to Jadhav on the ground that it was not applicable in cases related to spies. Jadhav had filed an appeal with Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa to seek clemency, which is still pending.

In October, the Pakistan Army had said it is close to a decision on the mercy petition of Jadhav.
