Pakistan Was Asked to Give Access To Consulate To Indian Naval Spy Jadhav
ISLAMABAD__ ICJ Asked Paksitan To Give Consular Access To Indina Spy Under The Article Of Article 36 Of Vienna Convention's Rights.
The ICJ rejected Indian remedies, including annulment of a military court decision to convict Jadhav, restrict Pakistani execution, release Jadhav and order his return in India. The International court rejected the remedies sought by India. On Wednesday, ICJ Chairman Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf announced the decision on the Kulbhushan Jadhav case.
The dissident notice was written by Pakistan Judge Tassadqu Hussain Jillani. On March 3rd 2016 in Balochistan, for spying and terror, Jadhav-a service officer of the Indian Navy in connection with Indian Research and Analysis Wing, had been imprisoned. Jadhav had admitted to his participation in terrorist plans in his later trial in a military tribunal.
In 2017, he was sentenced to death. India, however, insisted that Jadhav was not a spy and said in Iran that he had been abducted. The Chief of the Army General Qamar Bajwa approved the death sentence of Jadhav on 10 April 2017. In June 2017, the Indian spy submitted a request for compassion against the death penalty, confessing again to his participation in terrorist operations.
India had requested that the death sentence was given to Jadhav be immediately suspended. A re-establishment relief by stating that the army court's verdict was pronounced in blithely defying the Vienna Convention's rights in accordance with Article 36.
Pakistan has however chosen to give the Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav consulate access.
In a statement, Commander Kulbushan Jadhav has been notified of his rights in accordance with Article 36(1)(b) of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.
Pakistan, as a responsible state, will give the Commander Kulbushan Jadhav consular access, according to Pakistani laws and methods, it has been added.
On 17 July, the ICJ refused remedies sought in India, which included the revocation of Kulbhushan Jadhav's military court ruling, release and secure passage to India.
Judge Abdul Qavi Ahmed Yousaf announced the judgment, stating that Islamabad violated his right to visit the consular authorities and that the sentence had been reviewed by Pakistan for the Indian spy. The Judge also pointed out that the Vienna Convention was signed with Pakistan and India.
"A continued stay of execution constitutes an indispensable condition for the
effective review and reconsideration of the conviction and sentence of
Mr Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav," it ruled
The tribunal ruled that the Indian spy could not be transferred to India and will stay in Pakistan while discovering Jadhav responsible for conducting terrorist activities in Pakistan.
In Pakistan's Balochistan region in March 2016, the Indian Naval Officer was detained. On 25 March 2016, ISPR published a confessional declaration on Jadhav, claiming to be an agent serving the Indian Navy.
