Pakistan appoints judge for ICJ panel hearing Kulbhushan Jadhav's case

Kulbhushan Jadhav case Pakistan names former chief justice its ad hoc judge at ICJ

Pakistan has appointed former chief justice Tassaduq Hussain Jilani as ad-hoc judge at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to represent Pakistan in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case.

The procedure of the ICJ allows a party to nominate a judge ad hoc in circumstances where there is no judge of the court that has that party's nationality.

Jillani served as a judge in the Supreme Court during 2004-13 and as the chief justice from December 2013 to July 2014.

"ICJ has given time to Pakistan till 13 December, 2017, to submit its own memorial", he said.

Soon after meeting ICJ President Ronny Abraham and the delegations of Pakistan and India in the Netherlands on June 8, Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf Ali informed the World Court about Pakistan's intent to appoint a judge ad hoc to the ICJ bench for all proceedings, including substantive hearings in the Jadhav case. The Pakistani military has said he was arrested in the restive Balochistan province in March previous year.

On March 25, a day after the arrest, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs said the Indian man arrested from Balochistan has no connection with the government, however, admitted that Kulbhushan Yadav is a former officer of the Indian navy.

New Delhi had twice sought consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav - sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court for fomenting terrorism in Pakistan. Since India and Pakistan are involved in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, Pakistan was allowed to carry this appointment.

The Pakistan Army said last week its chief was close to a decision on a mercy petition filed by Jadhav after he was denied clemency by a military court.
