‘ICJ decision doesn’t change Jadhav case status’


Senior lawyers of international and constitutional laws here Friday said the decision of International Court of Justice (ICJ) has not changed the status of the case of Indian spy Kalbushan Jadhav.
In an exclusive chat with APP, senior international law and constitutional expert, Main Muhibullah Khan Kakakhel said this was a temporary decision of ICJ and the final decision was yet to be announced.
‘Cases did not end with issuance of stay orders rather full verdict of the court was required to take the case to its logical conclusion,’ he said.
He said the ICJ verdict has not changed the status of Commander Jadhav’s case in any manner as the court did not give full endorsement to the Indians’ prayers in this high profile case.
The senior lawyer said Pakistan has attended the hearing with highest respect for the international court of justice despite the fact that it can abstain from the proceedings.
He said that issues involving national security of a country like in Jadhav case did not come in the domain of ICT and this decision was not binding on Pakistan. —APP
