Kulbhushan Jadhav case: Pakistan says it does not accept ICJ's jurisdiction

"It is clear that as long as a final decision does not come Jadhav should be safe", he said, adding that the ruling would help in finding remedy to "violation of Jadhav's rights and also the violation of worldwide convention by Pakistan".

"We are determined to pursue this case to its logical end", Pakistan's Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf Ali said in a statement on Thursday.

In addition, Pakistan attended because of its conviction that the only way to resolve all outstanding issues is through peaceful means. Responding to the criticism by opposition parties, he said Pakistan could not have abstained from the hearing as any such move would have given advantage to India. There is an urgency in the case as Kulbhushan Jadhav was at risk of being executed.

The Kulbhushan Jadhav episode has exposed the real face of India to the world for its involvement in terrorism, terror financing, subversion and spying activities in a sovereign state of Pakistan.

At hearings on Monday, India called Jadhav's trial a "serious miscarriage of justice" because he wasn't allowed to see Indian diplomats or choose his own defense lawyer.

"This court unanimously decides that Pakistan shall take all measures at its disposal so that Kulbushan Jadhav is not executed pending a final decision of this court in the matter. This order today highlights the importance of the fact that when a person is allegedly accused he has a right of effective defence", he said.

Asserting its jurisdiction in the Jhadav case, ICJ president Ronny Abraham said the circumstances of his arrest remain disputed.

However, India, after being denied consular access for 16th time, dragged Pakistan to the ICJ on May 8 for violating the Vienna Convention.

Rulings by the U.N.'s highest court are final and binding on the countries involved. "These measures have no bearing whatsoever on the final decision of the Court", the statement said.

The AG's office interpreted the interim order by ICJ as maintaining the status quo in the case.

"The basic rights of Jadhav were thrown to the winds", he said.

"In our submissions on 15 May, we had assured the Court unambiguously that Commander Jadhav would be provided every opportunity and remedy available under the law to defend his case".
