PTI blames PM Nawaz for ICJ stay on Jadhav execution

PTI blames PM Nawaz for ICJ stay on Jadhav execution

Pakistan's stand that it does not accept ICJ's jurisdiction clearly "vindicates" India's position, said Ujjwal Nikam.

New Delhi has secured a temporary reprieve for Kulbhushan Jadhav with the United Nations' principal judicial organ ordering Pakistan to take all measures to ensure that the Indian national is not executed before the court gives its final judgment.

Spontaneous celebrations erupted in parts of Mumbai and Satara in Maharashtra on Thursday after the ICJ stayed the execution of alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav in Pakistan.

CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury, now in Hyderabad, though noted the ICJ has reiterated its earlier position that Pakistan should wait till the time the global court disposes of the case.

Jadhav has been falsely implicated and the sole evidence against him is only his confession which could have been obtained under duress, Nikam said.

London-based Barrister Rashid Aslam said Pakistan was ill-prepared and did not utilise the 90 minutes it had to make its argument. Find us on Facebook too! ICJ today stayed the execution pending a final decision in the proceedings.

Rohtagi anticipated that the consular access to Kulbhushan shall be given.

Worldwide law expert Ahmer Bilal Soofi was of the view that Pakistan should prepare for the second phase of the case, which was "more important because it would be contested on merit and would provide Pakistan the chance to document India's intervention inside Pakistan through Jadhav". "We are monitoring you", Salve said.

"Major victory for India #KulbhushanJadhav case".

Islamabad could insist on cooperation from India on the investigation into Jadhav's activities, he said.

Barrister Khawar Qureshi is not a junior lawyer but is a senior well-experienced practising lawyer in the UK. Further, it has noted that there is no exception to the consular access rule for those allegedly involved in "espionage".

The hearings and, final decision, could take more many months, if not years. Officials said he was attacked by other prisoners.

They also wondered why Pakistan wanted to appoint foreigner as an ad hoc judge when every state prefers to nominate its own lawyers. "Likewise, we spent more than one billion rupees on lawyers' fees in those cases", he said. "Secluded decisions, shrouded national security and defence policies are lethal for the country".

Marriyum Aurangzeb said sensationalizing this issue by media will not serve the national cause.
