ICJ decision bring shock and disappointment in Pakistan

Islamabad, Pakistan Politics May 18 @ 1:39pm

Pakistan's foreign ministry condemned a decision made by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Thursday (May 18) as not within their jurisdiction after they were ordered by the World Court not to execute an Indian citizen convicted of spying.

At the core of the dispute is the fate of Kulbhushan Sudir Jadhav, a former officer in the Indian navy who was arrested in March 2016 in the Pakistani province of Baluchistan.

India argues Jadhav was wrongly convicted for spying, while Pakistan says his legal process is ongoing and Pakistan has met its obligations under the Vienna Treaty on Consular Relations.

ICJ decision bring shock and disappointment in Pakistan. Ex-judges, senior lawyers said that Pakistan was ill-prepared and did not utilise the 90 minutes it had to make its argument.
