Indian Victory at ICJ

In a huge diplomatic victory for India , the International Court of Justice on Thursday stayed the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav, former Indian naval officer whom Pakistan accuses as Indian spy. The verdict came three days after India and Pakistan presented their arguments at the Hague court. India had launched proceedings against Pakistan alleging the violation of Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations 1963.

In a major setback to Pakistan, the court also clarified that the provisions of Vienna convention can be invoked even in the case of espionage. The court observed that India has presented enough evidence to show that Mr. Jadhav was at risk of being executed before the final hearing and completion of the whole procedure. India immediately welcomed the decision of the world court while Pakistan rejected the verdict saying the national security of the country is not under the purview of ICJ.

The ICJ order mandates the stay of execution and Pakistan has to inform the court regarding the measures it will take to implement the order. However, the order does not cover the issue of consular access to Mr.Jadhav.

Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj hailed the ICJ verdict and thanked Counsel Mr. Harish Salve for presenting India s case at ICJ.
