ICJ to resume hearing of case against Indian spy Kulbhushan Jhadav

ISLAMABAD - International Court of Justice will resume hearing in the case of Indian Spy Kulbhushan Jhadav at the Hague on Monday.

Islamabad has presented evidence obtained from Commander Jadhav after his arrest, and during the criminal process leading to his conviction as amply demonstrating his activities in fomenting terrorism in Pakistan.

Pakistan maintains that it would be incompatible with international law for someone sent as a spy/terrorist by a State to be afforded access to officials of that State, as India asserts.

India will go first in the hearing tomorrow while Pakistan will make its closing submissions on Thursday and it is expected that the ICJ decision will be delivered by the summer this year.

The ICJ has repeatedly stated that it is not a Criminal Court of Appeal and effective review of a conviction is available before the domestic Courts.
