jadhav’s ‘confessional video’ a “farce”, says india

The external affairs ministry said all this was false propaganda to influence the ICJ case.Indian external affairs ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay said in a statement: “The developments bring out once again the lack of transparency and farcical nature of proceedings against Jadhav on concocted charges, continued violation of his legal and consular rights and an attempt to introduce prejudice in the proceedings in the

icj denies pak request to play jadhav's 'confessional' video

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) today denied permission to Pakistan to play a purported "confessional" video of retired Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav at a public hearing here.

The ICJ denying permission to Pakistan to play the "confessional" video of Jadhav during the public hearing was a setback for Islamabad, India's lead attorney Harish Salve sai

immediately suspend jadhav's death sentence: india at icj

India today called for immediate suspension of its national Kulbhushan Jadhav's death sentence and accused Pakistan of violating the Vienna convention by denying its 16 requests for consular access.As the International Court of Justice (ICJ) began hearing Jadhav's case, India argued that human rights treated as "basics" all over had been thrown to the wind by Pakistan.All requests for consular access to 46-year-old Jadhav had fallen on "deaf ears", it said.The present situation, attorney Harish Salve said before the court, was grave and that is why India had sought ICJ's indulgence.India is presenting its case first, followed by Pakistan later in the day.

no info from pak on jadhav's condition

India may have got a breather from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, but his well-being still remains a matter of concern as Pakistan has provided no information about his location or health condition.The ICJ had yesterday stayed the execution of 46-year-old Jadhav, who was sentenced to death last month by a Pakistan military court that convicted him of alleged spying and subversive activities.

They also stressed on the requirement for Pakistan to produce evidence of proper trial which it claim

icj stays jadhav hanging - india legal

India earned an international victory on Tuesday when the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague, stayed the hanging of former Indian navy officer Kulbhusan Jadhav.The death sentence was passed by a Pakistani field general court marshal for spying. Indian efforts for consular meetings have failed and though India has presented a case to Pakistani courts, there has been no assurance that it would be considered. Hence the ICJ decision, coming a day after India approached the court is of some importance.The basis of India’s complaint to the ICJ was that Pakistan had violated the Geneva Convention and India’s argument has been that Jadhav was involved in a business and certainly not in spying. India has said that Jadhav was captured by the Taliban and sold to the Pakistanis and he c

icj stays execution of kulbhushan jadhav

By Parsa Venkateshwar Rao JrThe International Court of Justice (ICJ) has ruled on Thursday that Kulbhushan Jadhav shall not be executed until the case is decided on merits.President of the court, Judge Ronny Abraham, reading out the order in English, pointed out that the court has jurisdiction in the matter, rejecting Pakistan’s contention that it (ICJ) does not have a say in the matter because Jadhav is being tried for espionage and not for general crimes.The court has acceded to the Indian demand for provisional measures of protecting India from “irreparable prejudice” by asking Pakistan not to execute Jadhav.The court noted that Pakistan had assured that Jadhav would not be executed before the end of August, 2017, but the court said that Pakistan was obliged not to execute Jadhav.It was

'jadhav can seek mercy from pak prez'

Islamabad on Wednesday stated that former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav could seek clemency from the president of Pakistan, after exhausting legal options to challenge the death-sentence awarded to him.Abdul Basit, Islamabad’s envoy to New Delhi, said the Pakistan government had enough evidence against Jadhav that he was working for the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), India’s external intelligence agency.Basit was talking to a TV channel on Wednesday, two days after a military court in his country convicted Jadhav of being involved in “espionage and sabotage” to de-stabilise Pakistan and sentenced him to death.Basit said the Pakistan army had provided Jadhav a defence counsel during his trial by a field general court marshal.
