Kulbhushan Yadav case: ICJ embarrasses India
International Court of Justice on Wednesday announced that the hearing in the case of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav will take place on May 15 maintaining that the death sentence of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav has not been stayed.
The legal body, in a press release, said that it has already spoken to the government of Pakistan regarding the matter.
Indian media and government officials had incorrectly claimed that Jadhav’s sentence was stayed the moment ICJ released its press release about India’s application.
ICJ stated that Article 74, paragraph 4, of the Rules of Court stipulates that “pending the meeting of the Court, the President may call upon the parties to act in such a way as will enable any order the Court may make on the request for provisional measures to have its appropriate effects”
