The judgment of Kulbhushana Jadhava will bring ICJ tomorrow

New Delhi: The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is likely to pronounce a judgment in the case concerning Indian national Kulbhushana Jadhava tomorrow (Wednesday).
The verdict is significant in terms of India’s bilateral relations with Pakistan.
Kulbhushan Jadhav, a retired Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court over charges of espionage and terrorism in April 2017. India contacted the ICJ in May 2017 against Pakistan for refusing a consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhava.
India denied that Jadhav had any connection with Indian intelligence or security agencies after retreating from the navy.
In December 2017, Jadhav’s mother and wife traveled to meet him, but their interaction was through a glass barrier and over the phone. Jadhav’s responses during interaction also found stiffness and taught.
India has also challenged the “farsi trial” of Pakistan’s military court against 48-year-old Kulbhushan Jadhava. On May 18, 2017, the ICJ suspended Pakistan from the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhava to the judgment in the case.
