PAKISTAN DEFENCE MINISTER SAID – “JADAV HAS RIGHT TO APPEAL AGAINST SENTENCE WITHIN 60 DAYS” :

Pakistan Defence Minister Khawaja Asif today said that Kulbhushan Jadhav has a right to appeal against his death sentence within 60 days, even as he justified the death penalty given to the Indian national.  Jadhav, 46, was awarded death sentence by military Field General Court Martial under the army act for his alleged involvement in terrorism and espionage. The death sentence was confirmed by powerful army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa.  Speaking in the Senate, upper house of parliament, the defence minister today said that Jadhav has the right to appeal against his death sentence within 60 days.   Asif dismissed Indian concerns that proper legal process was not observed in the trial. “There was nothing in the [legal] proceedings that was against the law,” he said.  He also rejected the charges of premeditated murder.  “It’s not premeditated murder, what’s happening in Kashmir is (premeditated murder),” he alleged.  The Rediff.com : 11th.
