Pak says that Jadhav had confessed to carrying out terrorist activities inside Pakistan.
International Court of Justice (ICJ) can’t nullify the alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s death sentence, Pakistan’s top foreign policy adviser Sartaj Aziz said on Saturday.
Defiant Pakistan has reacted to its recent setback at the ICJ, by arguing that its domestic laws come 1st.
Sartaj Aziz said while addressing the media in Islamabad, “Jadhav had confessed carrying out terrorist activities in Pakistan & was an Indian Naval Officer using a fake passport, he was sentenced according to country’s law.”
No order on consular access for Jadhav
The ICJ hasn’t given any order regarding the consular access for Jadhav, who’s been sentenced to death according to the Pakistani laws,the ICJ has only asked Pakistan to keep a stay on Kulbhushan Jadhav’s execution until it arrives at a decision, Aziz added.
Addressing the press conference, Aziz said that when it comes to the cases involving death penalty, the international court has always given a stay order.
Aziz argues ICJ ruling was not a loss for Pak
The adviser said that, “a wrong impression was created by the Indian media that Pakistan has lost the case.”
Responding to a question that why no judge was sent on the day ofICJ hearing, he said that the govt. couldn’t appoint 1 within a short period of 5 days.
“We’ll go with a strong team in the next hearing,” Aziz said.
Judges at the ICJ ruled that Jadhav mustn’t be put to death by Pakistan until they’ve had time to pass a final judgment in this case.
Kulbhushan Jadhav was reportedly arrested in a counter-intelligence raid in Balochistan in March last year.
