Kulbhushan Jadhav Case: International Court of Justice stays the execution of death sentence

In the proceedings initiated by India on 08.05.2017 before the International Court of Justice against the execution of the death sentence imposed upon an Indian National Kulbhushan Jadhav, the International Court of Justice stayed the execution of the sentence. The information was shared by the External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj. She also informed that Senior Advocate Harish Salve is representing India before the International Court of Justice.

India has alleged that Pakistan has violated the Vienna Convention on Consular Relationsin the matter of the detention and trial of Kulbhushan Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death by a military court in Pakistan.

India’s case before the ICJ is that Pakistan kidnapped Kulbhushan Jadhav from Iran, where he was carrying on business after retiring from the Indian Navy, and was then shown to have been arrested in Baluchistan on 3 March 2016, and that the Indian authorities were notified of that arrest on 25 March 2016. India had sought consular access to Mr. Jadhav on 25 March 2016 and repeatedly thereafter.
