UN Court Orders Pakistan Not to Execute Indian National Convicted of Spying

Salve said the ICJ's verdict was binding on Pakistan."The court has made it very clear that our decision is binding".

The Internation Court of Justice on Thursday ordered Pakistan to not carry out the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav until it takes a final decision in the case. It lodged a case against Islamabad earlier this month, accusing the Pakistanis of violating the Vienna Convention by failing to provide him with consular access, as well as breaking worldwide human rights law. "The court has clearly underscored that the provisional measures are without prejudice to the final determination of the merits and jurisdiction of the case", the statement said. "India should have been given consular access as per Vienna convention", Judge Ronny Abraham said.

The ICJ ruling did not favor the arguments of either side but was meant to prevent Pakistan from taking any irrevocable steps before the court can decide whether it has jurisdiction in the case and, later, which side is right or wrong.

Reacting to the temporary relief granted by the global court, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi hoped the final decision would also come in India's favour.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) holds a public hearing on March 6, 2017 in The Hague.

Minister of State for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb has said any reporting on the interim order of International Court of Justice on Kulbhushan Jhadav case should be done responsibly. The court has overruled Pakistan's objections on the jurisdiction of the ICJ and upheld Indian plea for consular access.

The global court of justice, sometimes referred to as the world court, is the UN's court for hearing disputes between states.

"I assure the nation that under the leadership of Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi we will leave no stone unturned" to save Jadhav, India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted. Perhaps this puzzle can only be solved if Pakistan allows Indian authorities to meet Jadhav in Jail.

India said it took the rare step of appealing to the United Nations court after Pakistan denied 16 requests for its diplomats to visit Jadhav, and because it felt Jadhav's execution could be imminent.

Rohatgi said that he hoped that the final verdict, which would be announced in August, would also be in India's favour.

Pakistan sought to play down the significance of the order, saying it amounted to maintaining "status quo" in Jadhav's case and that it was determined to take the matter to its "logical end".

India moved the ICJ against the death penalty on May 8. Faisal said Jadhav "confessed to having been sent by India to wage terror on the innocent civilians and infrastructure of Pakistan".

Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju termed the ICJ's order is a "big victory" for India.
