Huge Diplomatic Win for India, International Court of Justice stays Kulbhushan Jadhav’s Death Sentence

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has stayed the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav sentenced by a military court in Pakistan. This was after India instituted proceedings against Pakistan at the court. Pakistan had violated the Vienna Convention on consular relations in the detention and trial of Jadhav.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj tweeted on the issue:

“I have spoken to the mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav and told her about the order of President, ICJ under Art 74 paragraph 4 of Rules of Court,” tweeted foreign minister Sushma Swaraj. Jadhav’s mother had earlier applied for a visa to be able to visit Pakistan and appeal against his death sentence but Islamabad has not yet responded to the request.

This can be seen as huge blow to Pakistan and a diplomatic win for India. No one is ready to buy Pakistan’s argument. Pakistan had accused Jadhav of being a R&AW spy. They had claimed that India was trying to create problems in their country by sending RAW agents into their country. The International Court of Justice has showed Pakistan its place.
