Kulbhushan Jadhav Case Verdict Announcement Today by The International Court of Justice

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will announce on Thursday its verdict on India's appeal seeking revocation of the death sentence awarded by a Pakistani court to alleged spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

India has accused Pakistan of "egregious violations" of the Vienna Convention on Consular Access. Jadhav was convicted in Pakistan and sentenced to death on April 10.

The Hague-based ICJ heard the two sides on Monday where Pakistan had challenged the jurisdiction of the court but in its decision the court prime facie exercised the jurisdiction and accepted Indian pleas.

Pakistan reacted coolly, with the attorney general's office stressing that the outcome was an interim order "without prejudice to the final determination of the merits" of India's case. He said Pakistan has already informed the ICJ that it does not accept its jurisdiction.

Responding to a question, Rohatgi asserted that the ICJ's interim verdict on Thursday was binding on both India and Pakistan.

International Court of Justice (ICJ) gave its verdict today, ruling in favour of India in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case.

"The Court indicates to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan that it must take "all measures at its disposal" to prevent the execution of an Indian national, Mr. Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav, pending final judgment of the Court", ICJ said in its order.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav from its restive Balochistan province on March 03 past year after he reportedly entered from Iran. In the four days since India and Pakistan presented their respective oral observations at The Hague, the topic of whether or not the court will order provisional measures in the case has been widely discussed (here's a look at some of the views published by this website). Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad also welcomed the ICJ verdict and asked the government to ensure justice is done to Jadhav and he is brought back to India. But death sentences have rarely been issued in recent years.

The next day, the global court stayed the sentence as a provisional measure. The Court further observes that Pakistan has indicated that any execution of Mr. Jadhav would probably not take place before the month of August 2017.

The court said it would set a date for ruling "as soon as possible".

India moved the ICJ against the death penalty on May 8. Where on the one hand, India's hopes regarding Jadhav will revive, on the other, Pakistan's relations with the other nations will suffer, affecting the country multi-laterally and economically.
