ICJ to announce verdict on terrorist Jadhav today

FO confirms Jadhav’s meeting with wife, mother on December 25

THE HAGUE: The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is likely to announce its verdict at 3:00pm Thursday (today) on the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian spy tried and sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on espionage charges.
The ICJ on Monday conducted hearing into India’s petition demanding staying of Pakistan’s death sentence to Kulbhushan Jadhav.
Pakistan’s counsel, Khawar Qureshi, presented the country’s stance in the ICJ on the death sentence handed to Jadhav , contending that according to the Vienna Convention the case cannot be heard in the ICJ.
“India has not provided any evidence to rebut that Jadhav is a terrorist,” Qureshi informed the court, moving it to turn down India’s request.
A public sitting will take place at the Peace Palace in The Hague on Thursday (today) during which Judge Ronny Abraham will read out the verdict, the ICJ announced on its official website.
