ICJ ISSUED ORDER, “PAKISTAN MUST ASSURE THAT JADHAV WILL NOT BE HANGED” :

The court said that appropriate to order that Pakistan should give assurance that Jadhav is not executed while the matter is pending.   That Pakistan shall take all measures at its disposal to ensure Jadhav is not executed pending final decision.  The ICJ agrees to provisional measures requested by India. The order is binding on both the countries.   Pakistan must inform the court of all the measures taken by it a blow to Pakistan, the International Court of Justice at The Hague on Thursday upheld Indias case against the Pakistan military courts death sentence to former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav for alleged “espionage and subversive activities”. The court has said the merits of the case will be looked at subsequently, but for now the court has ordered Pakistan to take all measures to ensure Jadhav is not executed. The court said that even though Pakistan had said that Jadhav would not be hanged before August 2017, there is still no commitment that he will not be hanged before the date. The court therefore said there was an urgency in the case and stayed the order. Big victory for India.   Rediff.com : 18th. May,17
