PM Imran Khan hails ICJ verdict in Kulbhushan Jadhav case
July 18, 2019
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday appreciated the International Court of Justice’s (ICJ) verdict not to acquit, release & return Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav. A day after the ICJ verdict, in a tweet, the prime minister said, “Appreciate ICJ’s decision not to acquit, release & return Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav to India. He is guilty of crimes against the people of Pakistan. Pakistan shall proceed further as per law. On Wednesday, India suffered a humiliating defeat in the ICJ that rejected its plea for annulment of conviction of Indian terrorist Kulbhushan Jadhav, his release and return to India  in The Hague. Judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf, president of the ICJ, read out the verdict that also rejected several proposals presented by Kulbhushan Jadhav. The court also asked Pakistan to give the consular access to Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav. “Pakistan and India are parties in the Vienna Convention which does not deprive a spy the consular access. However, he will remain in the custody of Pakistan,” it ruled. The judge remarked that there is no doubt Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav is an Indian citizen. “The conviction of Kulbhushan Jadhav cannot be considered the violation of Article 36 of the Vienna Convention,” it ruled. Attorney General Anwar Mansoor led the Pakistan delegation. Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal was also present. Pakistan’s counsel Khawar Qureshi said that Pakistan’s stance had won in the International Court of Justice. Attorney General Anwar Mansoor said that the dismissal of the Indian plea is the victory for Pakistan. “The ICJ has made it clear that Kulbhushan will not be released,” he said. Indian lawyer Haresh Salve was not present in the court. Meanwhile, Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said that the International Court of Justice in its judgment decided not to acquit or release Indian serving Naval Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav thus not accepting Indian pray. In a statement on Wednesday, he said that Pakistan, as a responsible member of the International community, upheld its commitment from the very beginning of the case by appearing before the Honourable court for the provisional measures hearing despite a very short notice. He said having heard the judgment, Pakistan will now proceed as per law. The FO spokesperson said that it was reiterated that Indian Naval Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav entered Pakistan without a visa on authentic Indian passport with a fake alias Hussain Mubarak Patel. He said Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav is responsible for acts of sabotage, espionage and multiple terrorist incidents in which scores of innocent Pakistani citizens were killed resulting into women being widowed and numerous children becoming orphans. Dr Faisal said Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav has confessed all these acts during his trial in Pakistani court in front of a judicial magistrate. “This is a clear case of Indian state terrorism,” he said.
