Govt has right to accept or reject Kulbhushan ICJ verdict: Rana Sana

Govt has right to accept or reject Kulbhushan ICJ verdict: Rana Sana

According to Pakistan, Jadhav was seized by its security forces in the restive Balochistan province on 3 March, 2016 after he reportedly entered from Iran.

Jadhav's case is the latest flash-point in the tensions between Pakistan and India.

According to government sources, since the case has reached the global court, it is incumbent on Pakistan to produce "material evidence" about his whereabout and well- being. He said the ICJ had given its point of view on Jadhav's case to get consular access, according to PTI.

In an exclusive chat with APP, senior worldwide law and constitutional expert Mian Muhibullah Khan Kakakhel said that this was a temporary decision of ICJ and the final decision was yet to be announced.

Aziz, however, maintained that Qureshi had "courageously" presented Pakistan's case in the court, the Nation reported. On April 10 this year, a Pakistani military court sentenced him to death. He said that several countries had executed convicts against the orders of ICJ.

"PM Nawaz should appear before the house to explain why Pakistan did not appoint an ad hoc judge as it had a right to and why the Foreign Office did not take legal advice before initiating correspondence on the issue", The Express Tribune quoted PTI Central Information Secretary Shafqat Mehmood, as saying.

Huddersfield moves 1 win away from the Premier League
The first leg had finished goalless, and the second leg at the Hillsborough Stadium on Wednesday evening ended 1-1. We asked three dedicated supporters - one from Reading and two from Huddersfield - for their views.

Pakistani analysts, who were earlier confident that the ICJ does not have jurisdiction to stay Jadhav's execution, observed after the verdict that the jurisdiction argument was "weak" and "damaging", reported Dawn. "This was a game which started after Jindal's visit to Pakistan", she said.

"Pakistan was set to re-challenge the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice after it granted injunction on Thursday on an Indian plea to stay Jadhav's execution", Dunya News reported.

Another opposition leader, Kamil Ali Agha, described the ICJ decision as the "biggest diplomatic defeat" for Pakistan.

National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq on Friday said that Indian spy Kulbushan Jadhav's issue should not be politicised. The retired Indian Navy officer has been in Pakistan custody for more than a year.

Alamzaib told Pakistan had followed the due process of law while sentencing Commander Jadhav adding that they have to present all details of evidences against him in ICJ.
