THE HAGUE : International Court of Justice (ICJ) will announce on May 18 its verdict on Indian plea seeking provisional stay against execution of RAW agent Kulbhusan Jadhav, who was sentenced to death by Pakistan’s military court.
The international court had conducted a hearing of the petition filed by India on May 15. Counsels of the two states, Pakistan and India had concluded their arguments following which the panel had reserved the verdict.
Pakistan had maintained that it was beyond jurisdiction of the court to hear such a case.
In a statement, the ICJ announced that the court would announce its verdict on Thursday, may 18.
Counsel for Pakistan Khawar Qureshi maintained that responsibility to punish terrorists lies with all of the countries. Qureshi said that the issue at hand concerns national stability of Pakistan and ICJ does not have the jurisdiction to rule over such case.
