US exercised 3 executions against Hague court rulings

Staff Reporter


Experts have cited three executions exercised by the United States in the past against International Court of Justice’s verdicts in bid to endorse Pakistan’s stance of not acknowledging UN court’s jurisdiction in Jadhav’s case.
Reportedly, the governments of the States between 1998 to 2003 did not comply with the orders of the international court to halt executions of three persons.
The United States has set a precedent in this regard to not compromise over national stability irrespective of ICJ’s orders in an issue. Nationals belonging to Mexico, Paraguay and Germany were sentenced to death in the past and the UN court had ordered to halt their executions.
However, the United States did not comply with the orders and executed all three persons.
