The International Court of Justice on Thursday blocked the execution of Jadhav, sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of spying and subversion.
The Indian legal expert said the judge could have recused himself from the panel, which would have weakened any move by Pakistan to appoint an ad hoc judge. This means Jadhav can challenge till the end of Saturday his death sentence in an appellate court. Opposition Leader Khurshid Shah even accused the government of not fulfilling its duties pertaining to Kulbhushan Jadhav case.
The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) said that the case at the ICJ had been mishandled and demanded a meeting of the national security committee on the Jadhav issue.
Pakistan's Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz said Islamabad, with a new team of lawyers, will put forward its case vigorously in the International Court of Justice against letting off Jadhav on India's plea.
In the judgment released by the ICJ at The Hague on Thursday, the tribunal asked Pakistan to take all "necessary measures at its disposal" to ensure that Jadhav was not executed pending a final decision by it.
Pakistan, which announced the sentence on Jadhav on April 10, claims its security forces arrested him from its restive Balochistan province on March 3 previous year after he reportedly entered from Iran.Читайте также: Manufacturers selling more stock, says CBI
"They wanted the ICJ to give a stay".
He called the ICJ's temporary stay of the execution of alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav a "setback" for the country and said the government's negligence was evident in the case.
The channel reported that Pakistan has filed an appeal in United Nations court against the interim order given by ICJ, demanding another hearing within 6 weeks.
"PM Nawaz should appear before the house to explain why Pakistan did not appoint an ad hoc judge as it had a right to and why the Foreign Office did not take legal advice before initiating correspondence on the issue", The Express Tribune quoted PTI Central Information Secretary Shafqat Mehmood, as saying.
Mehmood attacked the government for selecting a lawyer at the ICJ "who had not a single global law case reported from the UK Supreme Court". The two countries last faced off at the ICJ 18 years ago when Islamabad sought its intervention over the shooting down of its naval aircraft. "This has been a matter of concern".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
