For us, ICJ ruling has changed nothing, says Pakistan AG

Pakistan on Friday filed a plea in the ICJ to rehear within six weeks the case of alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court.

Pakistan's foreign office had on Thursday said it does not accept the ICJ's jurisdiction in matters related to national security after the United Nations court stayed Jadhav's execution.

Pakistan should also request a fast-track hearing and consider holding a fresh trial for the spy in civilian courts by quashing the conviction handed down by the military court, he said. "We are confident that India would not be able to hide the subversive activities it is trying to carry out through its agents like Commander Jadhav".

There is also anger in the political establishment in Pakistan that the PM and 4 cabinet ministers were overseas when the trial took place, said the report. Hitherto, India has avoided taking its disputes with Pakistan to a third party for settlement; the only exception being matters related to the Indus river waters.

"Pakistan shall take all measures.to ensure Jadhav is not executed pending the final decision in these proceedings, and shall inform the court of all the measures taken in the implementation of the present order", the ICJ said in its order. "We made a decision to go before ICJ so we lost on each point raised by India including urgency of matter", she said. Instead of contesting the matter, this should have been done immediately after the Indians took Jadhav's case to the ICJ, he said.

Jindal is said to be a friend of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Seeking an explanation as to why the government did not submit a written defence before May 15, the PTI leader argued that apprehension regarding the ICJ decision had come true. Pakistan will constitute a new team of lawyers to "vigorously" present its case against Jadhav, the Pakistan Prime Minister's Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said on Friday.

In an exclusive chat with APP, senior global law and constitutional expert Mian Muhibullah Khan Kakakhel said that this was a temporary decision of ICJ and the final decision was yet to be announced. "India should have been given consular access as per Vienna Convention".

The other option, he said, was to demand for an annulment of the death sentence. According to CNN-News18, an application has been moved to the ICJ by the Pakistani side, where they want to challenge the jurisdiction of the ICJ itself.
