IANS | THE HAGUE | MAY 18, 2017:: In a major relief for India, the International Court of Justice on Thursday ordered Pakistan not to execute alleged spy Kulbhushan Jadhav till a final decision is taken.
Judge Ronny Abraham, President of the court, reading out the court verdict also asked Pakistan to inform it of all the measures it has taken to implement the order.
Union minister of external affairs Sushma Swaraj who had earlier said that India will go out of its way to ensure Jadhav’s return took to Twitter hailing the top court’s decision.
India on Monday had sought the court’s intervention for an immediate suspension of Jadhav’s death sentence, fearing that the Indian national may be executed even before the ICJ decided the case.
Indian lawyer Harish Salve alleged that the trial of Jadhav, a former navy officer, was held under “farcical” circumstances in violation of the Vienna Convention.
Salve demanded that Pakistan should annul Jadhav’s death sentence as he was not even given a chance to defend himself.
ICJ orders Pakistan to stay Jadhav execution (Alzajeera).
