Pakistan moves ICJ to rehear Kulbhushan Jadhav case

| Friday May 19th, 2017

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

Pakistan was set to re-challenge the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice after it granted injunction on Thursday on an Indian plea to stay Jadhav’s execution.

According to law, Jadhav can challenge his death sentence in an appellate court till the end of Saturday. A military court sentenced him to death on April 10 on spying and terrorism charges.

Within 60 days of the verdict of the appellate court, the inmate can make a clemency appeal to the Chief of the Pakistan Army, Dunya News said.
