ICJ to hold public hearings of spy Kulbhushan’s case on May 15
ICJ to hold public hearings of spy Kulbhushan’s case on May 15: The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will begin public hearings on Pakistan’s decision to execute Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav from Monday, May 15, according to a press release issued by the United Nation’s judicial body on Wednesday evening.
Earlier this week, India moved the ICJ against Pakistan, accusing the latter of violating the Vienna Convention in the case of the Indian spy, who was handed a death sentence by a Field General Court Martial (FGCM) last month.
The international court will hear India’s observations in the first session and that of Pakistan in the second session.
The hearings will be streamed live and on demand (VOD) on the ICJ’s website, as well as on the United Nations online television.
In an application filed in the ICJ on Monday, India stated that Pakistan has repeatedly denied consular access to Jadhav.
India also alleged that “it was not informed of Jadhav’s detention until long after his arrest,” and learned about the death sentence through the media.
India requested the ICJ to ensure that Jadhav’s death sentence is suspended and declared a violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.
