AN APPLICATION FILED IN THE SUPREME COURT OF PAKISTAN SEEKING IMMEDIATE EXECUTION OF KULBHUSHAN JADAV :

 

In a development that could render the entire International Court of Justice hearing a futile exercise, an application has been filed in the Supreme Court of Pakistan, seeking immediate execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav.  The application states that Jadhav has not “appealed against his death penalty” and “international law was not binding” on Pakistan.  According to a report in The Nation, a Pakistan-based newspaper, the applicant has submitted before the apex court of Pakistan that Jadhav had pleaded guilty in front of the military courts and he has also not exercised his right to appeal against the death penalty, hence “Jadhav should be hanged immediately”.  The applicant has also stated that the decisions of death sentence and refusal of diplomatic access were according to Pakistani law, and not the international law. “Pakistan is free to act according to its domestic law,” reported The Nation.  The Rediff.com : 27th.
