Kulbhushan Jadhav at the ICJ: An Indo-Pak face off today

The Hague Battle: International Court of Justice to hold hearing in Kulbhushan Jadhav case today

"We are hopeful that we will soon be able to see Kulbhushan in our midst", Jadhav's classmate, who studied at the King George School at Dadar here, said.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) began conducting a public hearing on Monday in the case pertaining to the conviction of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was sentenced to death by a Field General Court Martial (FGCM) last month.

He said the Indian Spy was sentenced to death after fulfilling all necessary legal procedures and Indian Spy was also given council to defend allegation against him.

He said India did not express any reaction on use of fake Passport by its citizen.

He urged the court to dismiss India's application on three accounts - that there was "no urgency", the relief sought was "manifestly unavailable" and the jurisdiction under the Vienna Convention was not "as unchallenged" as India has suggested.

Pakistan while presenting its case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Kulbhushan Jadhav claimed that "India has used the court as the scene of political theatre". The Vienna Convention was adopted for better communication between friendly countries. "Vienna Convention provisions do not intend to those involved in terror activities", he added.

Qureshi argued that India's application at ICJ unnecessary and misconceived while India maintained that Jadhav's trial process is "farcical". It also accused Pakistan of violating the Vienna convention by denying its 16 requests for consular access.

'The execution of the death sentence can not be done while this court is hearing the appeal. Jadhav was given 150 days to clarify himself.

Harish Salve: No evidence of Jadhav being spy.

The Indian naval officer had confessed to committing and planning subversive activities inside Pakistan.

On March 25, a day after the arrest, the Indian Ministry of External Affairs said the Indian man arrested from Balochistan has no connection with the government, however, admitted that Kulbhushan Yadav is a former officer of the Indian navy.

Both lay claim to complete control over the Himalayan territory of Kashmir which has been divided between India and Pakistan since the end of British colonial rule in 1947.

India, in its appeal to the ICJ, had asserted that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he was doing business and after taking a voluntary retirement from the Indian Navy.

V.D. Sharma, Joint Secretary (Legal and Treaties) in the MEA, said Pakistan had failed to comply with all its legal obligations by denying consular access to Jadhav since his arrest in March 2016.
