Kulbhushan Jadhav case: India to file arguments at ICJ today

Students protest against Kulbhushan Jadhav’s death sentence at Lalbaugh in Mumbai

Members of the International Court of Justice on May 18, 2017, the date they delivered their judgment in the Indian case against Pakistan.

India will reportedly hand over its written arguments, known as memorial, to the ICJ on its plea to declare Pakistan as violator of worldwide law for sentencing Jadhav to death.

On April 10, a Field General Court Martial, under the Pakistan Army Act and Official Secrets Act, awarded death sentence to Jadhav for espionage and sabotage.

On May 18, the United Nations top court asked Pakistan to not execute Kulbhushan Jadhav before they decide the case. He has been sentenced to death by the court of Pakistan without even a hearing and without providing an opportunity to him to put forth his point of view. "The court will take its decision".

Both India and Pakistan will make their submissions before the ICJ.

The stay on Jadhav's execution will remain in force throughout the hearings on the merits of India's case against Pakistan and until a final verdict is reached.

Pakistan defence minister Khawaja Asif said Kulbhushan Jadhav had the right to appeal within 60 days, adding that "due process of law" had been followed. We should not comment on it.

He said the CPEC was a result of unprecedented friendshipbetween China and Pakistan.

On June 8, Indian and Pakistani representatives met the International Court of Justice's president, Ronny Abraham, to discuss a timeline for the case.

Jadhav had no formal counsel to argue his case at the court and several of India's requests for consular access have been denied by Pakistan.

"Nobody can reverse it [the Economic Corridor], it will succeed at any cost", he was quoted as saying.

India, however, maintains that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy. Islamabad also said the claim that Delhi wasn't provided consular access to Jadhav is far removed from the truth and it was "wholly inappropriate" for India to seek provisional measures from the ICJ.
