ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry has said that Pakistan abided by all its international obligations, which applied to the ICJ judgment in the case of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

He was commenting on the remarks of Indian Ministry of External Affairs’ spokesperson regarding International Court of Justice' (ICJ) Review and Re-consideration Bill passed by the National Assembly of Pakistan.

The FO spokesperson contradicted the Indian statement on the legislation passed by Pakistan's National Assembly and regretted that New Delhi has chosen to misrepresent the ICJ judgment.

Earlier, the NA has passed the bills regarding the Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav and the voting right for overseas Pakistanis.

The NA approved “International Court of Justice (ICIJ) (Review and Re-consideration) Ordinance, 2020 aimed at giving foreigners the right to appeal military court convictions in the high courts.

The bill was presented by Law Minister Farogh Naseem. It now be tabled in Senate and if it gets passed it will become law. The proposed law will allow foreign nationals to file an appeal themselves or through their country’s mission against their military court convictions.

The new law will allow Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav to appeal his conviction in the civilian court. In its verdict in 2019, the International Court of Justice had directed Pakistan to review and reconsider his conviction.
