Why Pakistan has rejected the ICJ verdict
ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s foreign office has said the International Court of Justice does not have jurisdiction to stay Indian spy Kalbhusan Jadhav’s execution, who was sentenced to death by a military court earlier this year.
“This is a matter of national security. Pakistan does not accept the ICJ’s jurisdiction in the case of Indian spy Kalbsuhan Jhadav,” Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria stated during weekly news briefing in Islamabad.
He added that Jhadav confessed to his crimes twice.
Earlier on Thursday, the UN’s top court announced its ruling on an urgent bid by India to stop Pakistan from executing a death sentence for Jadhav, one of its nationals convicted of spying and subversive activities in Pakistan.
