ICJ verdict will come in India's favour: Centre

In an emergency hearing on Monday held only days after India lodged its case, lawyers for New Delhi called on the International Court of Justice to order Islamabad to suspend its execution of Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav. "A public sitting will take place at 12 noon at the Peace Palace in The Hague, during which Judge Ronny Abraham, President of the Court, will read the court's decision", the worldwide court said in a release, according to PTI report.

Echoing the same, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Nalin Kohli said the central government has argued the matter forcefully in the ICJ and hence the verdict would come in India's favour.

Jadhav was awarded the death sentence by a Pakistani military court last month, a year after he was arrested on espionage charges.

India told the International Court of Justice (ICJ) that immediate steps must be taken to stop Pakistan's from carrying out the death sentence of former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav.

After hearing the arguments of the two sides, the court said it will issue its order on India's request for provisional measures "as soon as possible"."The date on which this order will be delivered at a public sitting will be duly communicated to the parties", the court said. "There is an immediate threat to him to be executed even before a decision is passed", joint secretary in the Ministry of External Affairs Deepak Mittal told the court in his opening remarks. However, the ICJ ordered a stay on Jadhav's death sentence at the beginning of the trial. The neighbouring country also had accused India of using the world body as a stage for "political theatre" in the Jadhav case, the reports say.

Swaraj was responding to a tweet by Sanjeev Goyal, who said India could have got any good lawyer with much less fee than what Salve must have charged for fighting the case.

India, in its appeal, has asserted that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran, where he was doing business after he retired from the Indian Navy.

He said India made innumerable requests for consular access, but Pakistan refused to provide documents relating to the case and consular access to him.

Islamabad also asked the court to reject India's plea for provisional measure in the case.

Jadhav was arrested in the southwestern province of Balochistan in March 2016 and Pakistani officials claim he has confessed to spying for Indian intelligence services.

"The International Court of Justice (ICJ) denied permission to Pakistan to play a six-minute" confessional" video of Jadhav which India terms as a statement taken forcible in captivity.

The face-off over Jadhav has brought relations between the two rival neighbors to a new low.
