ICJ Stays Death Sentence Given To Jadhav Until Further Notice

Hague, May 18: The International Court of Justice has stayed the death sentence awarded to former Indian Naval officer and Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav by the Pakistan military court.

Justice Ronny Abraham of the ICJ read out the verdict and asserted that the case was indeed debatable, while also adding that the ICJ had prime facie jurisdiction in the case. Abraham added that under the Vienna Convention, India should have received consular access to seek justice for the former Indian Naval officer.

The only condition under which Jadhav now stands to face execution is if Pakistan does not comply with the ICJ's decision. India can then go to the Security Council, which may then decide upon measures to be taken to give effect to the judgement.
