FO rebuts India’s claim in Jadhav case

Staff Reporter

The Foreign Office on Saturday accused New Delhi of “misrepresenting” the verdict of the International Court of Justice in the case of convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, saying that Pakistan was fulfilling all its obligations under international law.

“It is regrettable that the Indian government has chosen to misrepresent the ICJ judgment which clearly states in Paragraph 147 that Pakistan is under an obligation to provide, by means of its own choosing, effective review and reconsideration of the conviction and sentence of Jadhav,” FO spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said in statement.

“In line with paragraph 146 of the ICJ judgment, Pakistan chose to provide Commander Jadhav the right of review and reconsideration by superior courts of Pakistan through the International Court of Justice (Review and Reconsideration) Ordinance, 2020,” he added.
