Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

Pakistan has received a drubbing in the international community yet again. In connection with the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, the president of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) has deplored Pakistan for ignoring the rules of the Vienna Convention. The ICJ said that information about his arrest was not even given to the Indian embassy. Even after several appeals from India, Kulbhushan Jadhav was not given consular access.

ICJ president-judge Abdulqawi Yusuf, while issuing a statement at the United Nations, said that Pakistan had violated Article 36 of the Vienna Treaty.

India has always been demanding consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav, which Pakistan rejected every time except on one occasion of a farcical show.

India has consistently said that Pakistan is violating the Vienna Treaty. Earlier, during the hearing of this case, Pakistan was asked to review the execution of Jadhav’s death sentence.

ICJ presiAbdulqawi Yusuf

While presenting the ICJ report to the 193-member General Assembly on Wednesday, Abdulqawi Yusuf elaborated on several aspects of the court’s decision in Jadhav’s case. Yusuf had said on Tuesday that he was ‘happy’ that the tension between India and Pakistan had reduced by the decision in the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian citizen.

Jadhav, a retired Navy officer from India who had turned a businessman, was sentenced to death in 2017 by a Pakistan military court on charges of ‘espionage and terrorism’. The ICJ bench headed by Yusuf, on the other hand, ordered an “effective review and reconsideration” of Jadhav’s conviction and sentence.

Yusuf said, ‘We have many cases in Asian countries. For example, in July, the court delivered a judgment on a dispute between India and Pakistan, which was a very delicate and sensitive issue. It was a matter related to the life of a person who was given the death sentence in Pakistan. There was a lot of tension in both countries regarding this. And we are happy that the court’s decision has contributed to reducing and reducing stress since then.”
