International Court of Justice stays Kulbhushan Jadhav?s death sentence, writes to Pakistan

In a reprieve for Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at The Hague on Tuesday acted on India’s petition and asked Pakistan to stay the exectution ordered by a Pakistan military court. Jadhav, a retired Indian Navy officer, was arrested by Pakistan and found guilty of being a spy for India’s intelligence agencies. He was awarded the death sentence in April.

In his letter to the Pakistan government, President of the ICJ Ronny Abraham said: “In my capacity as President of the court, and exercising the powers conferred upon me under Article 74, paragraph 4 of the Rules of Court, I call upon your excellency’s government, pending the court’s decision on the request for the indication of provisional measures, to act in such a way as will enable any order the Court may make on this request to have had its appropriate effects.”

The ICJ was acting on a petition moved by India on Monday,where it accused Pakistan of “egregious violations of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations”. In its application, India had said it was not informed of Jadhav’s detention until long after his arrest and that Pakistan failed to inform the accused of his rights.
