Islamabad, Aug 22: The International Court of Justice (ICJ) set February 2019 for hearing the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the media reported on Wednesday. 

According to Geo News report, the court will hear the case for a week from February 19 to 25.

The Indian national was sentenced to death in April 2017 by a Pakistani military court after being convicted on charges of terrorism and espionage, following which New Delhi moved the ICJ.

A 10-member ICJ bench on May 18 last year halted the execution of Jadhav.

Pakistan had said that “Jadhav was not an ordinary person as he had entered the country with the intent of spying and carrying out sabotage activities” in Balochistan. While India denied all the charges.

He was allegedly held on March 3, 2016 after he crossed into Pakistan from Iran, according to Pakistani officials.
