Pakistan Army on Wednesday said it will respond at an “appropriate level” to any query by the International Court of Justice over the death sentence given to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav by its military court on the charges of “spying”.  Army spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor told the media that Jadhav was sentenced by a military court after “due process of law”.  “If the ICJ requests Pakistan anything about Jadhav, then the government of Pakistan will respond to it at an appropriate level, he said.  He said, “The process is continuing within the army over the decision by the (military) court against Jadhav.”  However, he did not explain the nature of “process”.  The statement came after Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and discussed the ICJ’s stay order on the execution of Jadhav.  Earlier, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said the government was analysing the Hague-based ICJ’s authority in freezing the execution of Jadhav.  Aziz said the government would issue a statement on the issue in the next few days.  “We are analysing the Indian petition and the ICJ’s authority in this case, Aziz said after the Hague-based ICJ stayed the execution of 46-year-old Jadhav.  The Rediff.com : 10th.
