Saving Kulbhushan Jadhav

Reference news

India has approached the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to stall the possible execution of Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav in Pakistan.

India and Mr. Jadhav’s family have also filed appeal against his conviction on charges of espionage and on petitions for mercy before Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff and President.

With India instituting the case, the ICJ President has written to Pakistan to act in such a way that any order passed by the court would have its appropriate effect. While this virtually operates as a stay on Jadhav’s execution, a substantive interim order is expected when the court hears India’s application for provisional measures at its hearing on May 15, 2017.
