JAMMU: Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha and senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad welcomed the unanimous decision of International Court of Justice (ICJ) granting a stay on execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistan pending the final decision of the Court.
“Case against Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistan was a sham and was in gross violation of International law as his execution was ordered by a kangaroo court without consular access. It is appreciated that the World Court saw reason in Indian appeal and could see through the false Pakistan propaganda by rightly turning down their request to play the purported confessional video during hearing earlier.” said Azad.
Azad congratulated the Indian team which represented the country in the International Court of Justice and stressed that the Government should not leave any stone unturned to ensure justice for Kulbhushan Jadhav and his return to our country.
Meanwhile, Prof Bhim Singh, Senior Executive Member, Supreme Court Bar Association of India and expert on International Law and ICJ, also welcomed the interim verdict of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at Hague in which the ICJ rejected Pakistan’s arguments challenging the jurisdiction of the ICJ in Jadhav’s case.
Bhim mentioned that he had written a letter on 12th April, 2017 to the Supreme Court of Pakistan with a copy of a petition against Jadhav’s death sentence. He had also declared that he shall move International Court of Justice, if need be or in case Pakistan did not accept his petition challenging Jadhav’s death sentence.
Singh said that he shall go to Hague next month to assist the ICJ in Kulbushan Jadhav case on behalf of the Legal Aid Committee in the month of June this year.
