    The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is all set to deliver its judgement in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case on Wednesday, with Indians, and in particular, the people of Maharashtra hoping for a verdict in favour of the former Indian Navy officer who is on a death row in Pakistan on charges of spying for RAW.

    The world court, based in The Hague, will deliver its verdict today evening on India’s petition that Jadhav is not a spy, as claimed by Pakistan, and should be released immediately.

    A Pakistani team headed by the Attorney General Anwar Mansoor Khan has reached The Hague, in the Netherlands to hear the verdict. The team also includes Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, the Express Tribune reported.

    An Indian team, comprising senior officials and some of the best legal brains, will be present when the Hague-based court delivers its verdict at around 1830 hrs IST. The ICJ had concluded its hearings in the case on 21 February.

    The verdict could have significant implications for the future course of Indo-Pak relations which are already under tremendous strain since the Pulwama terror attack in February.

    Pakistan claims it arrested Jadhav on 3 March 2016 when he attempted to cross over into the country from the Saravan border in Iran in pursuit of targets set by his RAW handlers. New Delhi has rubbished Pakistan’s claim, asserting that the Indian national was abducted by Pakistani agencies from Iran where he was running a business.

    Pakistan subsequently conducted a farcical trial of Jadhav in a military court and sentenced him to death. Pakistan Army chief, Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, had endorsed the death penalty for Jadhav in April 2017.

    Pakistan also refused to give consular access to the Indian prisoner despite repeated requests by New Delhi. In June 2017, Jadhav filed a mercy petition against the death penalty. However, it was rejected by Pakistan, forcing India to approach the ICJ. India sought annulment of Jadhav’s execution and his immediate release by Pakistan. The court, during its hearings, asked Pakistan to stay his execution till it delivers its final verdict.

    The Kulbhushan Jadhav case is the fourth time the International Court of Justice would be adjudicating a case involving India and Pakistan. In the three previous cases, the ICJ has been careful in not passing judgments that could be seen as one-sided.

    Jadhav, 49, was born in Maharashtra’s Sangli district and spent his childhood at the family home in south Mumbai’s NM Joshi Marg, and later shifted to Powai.

    He joined the Indian Navy as an officer around 1987 but quit the force in 2001 to set up his own business.

    Jadhav is not the first Indian national to be held by Pakistan and sentenced to death after being labelled a “spy” and “terrorist”.

    Prior to Jadhav, Sarabjit Singh, a farmer from Punjab, was also falsely implicated on charges of terrorism after he inadvertently crossed over to Pakistan on August 30, 1990. He was charged with bombings in Lahore and Faisalabad and sentenced to death by a local court in 1991.

    Basically, Pakis will have to review the Death penalty and will have to provide counsellor access.

    Weird....Death Penalty, which was the original judgement by the military court is out of the question now. The previous judgement is basically null and void right now.

    Weird indeed,
    As per media reports,

    "The Court has, however, rejected remedies sought by India, including annulment of military court decision convicting Jadhav, his release and safe passage to India



    Although Kulbhushan Jadhav will not be returning to India any time soon, which would have been our best case scenario, it is a relief indeed that ICJ has directed Pakistan to suspend and review his death sentence. It has also directed Pakistan to provide him consular access – in accordance with international diplomatic norms, this is something India has been asking for ever since he was arrested by Pakistan in 2016. This is the very least that Pakistan should do right away."

    The technical term here is,mil courts judgement is "suspended".

    At present,he is out of the harms way I understand that.

    But,what do you think ,happen in the long term?(future trial proceedings,legalities etc.)

    Depends, giving him consular access will also mean it will be difficult for Pakis to harm him even within Prison. But he could end up in there for years as Pakis will keep dragging his case endlessly.

    He is still missing. Pakis don't have a clue who has him. They neither know if he was abducted or defected.

    It doesn't matter to them, that stupid country does not have the intellect to win any international case. It only benefits India in the International arena to display who the bad guys are.

    Our intel assets on the ground informed the muricans,about the airlift. Down to the details of how many were airlifted,identities of the lease etc.

    So we were awarded,the Parliament attack.

    Kunduz airlift-November 2001
    Parliament attack- 13 December 2001

    Connect the dots...

    Below article explains the details of the kunduz airlift and our intel gathering prowess.

    That’s funny, the Americans controlled the complete airspace. The Pakistani airlift was with American blessings, supposedly to take out their army personnel but eventually included top taliban commanders.
