THE HAGUE: The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is announcing its verdict in the case of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.
The ICJ on Monday conducted hearing into India’s petition demanding staying of Pakistan’s death sentence to Kulbhushan Jadhav, a RAW operative and on-duty Indian navy officer who was apprehended from Balochistan in a counter-intelligence operation in March 2016.
Pakistan’s counsel, Khawar Qureshi, presented the country’s stance in the ICJ on the death sentence handed to Jadhav, contending that according to the Vienna Convention the case cannot be heard in the ICJ.
“India has not provided any evidence to rebut that Jadhav is a terrorist,” Qureshi informed the court, moving it to turn down India’s request.
A public sitting will take place at the Peace Palace in The Hague on Thursday (today) during which Judge Ronny Abraham will read out the verdict, the ICJ announced on its official website.
