IN A tense face-off on Monday at the International Court of Justice in The Hague, India sought “annulment” of the death sentence awarded to Kulbhushan Jadhav by a Pakistani military court while Pakistan said the clemency process of 150 days should be exercised first and the plea citing urgency should be “dismissed”.
Pakistan, which wanted to screen a six-minute video of Jadhav’s confession at the ICJ, was denied permission by the court. However, its representative displayed a purported copy of Jadhav’s Indian passport, issued in the name of Hussein Mubarak Patel, on a screen inside the packed courtroom.
After hearing arguments from both sides, the Court’s President Ronny Abraham said the verdict would be announced “as soon as possible” and the date “duly communicated”.
On April 10, Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was given the death sentence by a military court in Pakistan for alleged “espionage and subversive activities”.
