Jadhav case: Pakistan receives India’s pleadings to ICJ



Islamabad, Sep 15 : Pakistan said on Friday that it has received the written pleadings submitted before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) by India in the case of alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

A team of lawyers and experts, headed by Attorney General Ashtar Ausuf, were considering India’s pleadings, Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said.

The ICJ on Wednesday resumed the hearing in the case of Jadhav who was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court for espionage.

Zakaria added that Pakistan will submit its counter-memorial to the UN court soon, in which it will highlight the acts of espionage and terrorism committed by Jadhav in Pakistan, Dawn online reported.

In May 2017, India had moved the UN’s top court against Pakistan and accused it of violating the Vienna Convention by denying consular access to Jadhav and requested the ICJ to ensure that Jadhav’s death sentence is suspended.

India also said that it was “not informed of Jadhav’s detention until long after his arrest”, and learned about his death sentence through the media.

During a hearing at the ICJ on May 15, the court had stayed Jadhav’s execution. “Pakistan should take all measures to ensure that Jadhav is not executed till the final decision of this court”, the court had ruled.

The ICJ is yet to pass the final verdict in the case and had ordered India and Pakistan to file their pleas and counter-arguments by September 13 and December 13, respectively.

Pakistan says Jadhav was arrested during a counter-intelligence raid in Balochistan in March 2016.

He “confessed” to being a spy for India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).

“Across all walks of life, we are all being tested to the limit,” Tedros said, “from countries where there is exponential growth, to places that are loosening restrictions and now starting to see cases rise.

The World Health Organization (WHO) on Friday acknowledged the success of the steps followed in Mumbai’s Dharavi to contain the coronavirus, saying community engagement and testing is key to breaking the chain of transmission of the disease.

Dharavi, one of the largest slums in Asia, on Friday reported 12 new cases, taking its tally to 2,359. Dharavi currently has 166 active cases and 1,952 patients have been discharged from hospitals following recovery so far.

WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the examples of Italy, Spain, South Korea and India’s biggest slum showed that however bad a outbreak was, the virus could still be reined in through aggressive action.

“In the last six weeks cases have more than doubled,” Tedros told a virtual press conference in Geneva.

However, “there are many examples from around the world that have shown that even if the outbreak is very intense, it can still be brought back under control,” said Tedros.

“And some of these examples are Italy, Spain and South Korea, and even in Dharavi — a densely packed area in the megacity of Mumbai — a strong focus on community engagement and the basics of testing, tracing, isolating and treating all those that are sick is key to breaking the chains of transmission and suppressing the virus.”

The novel coronavirus has killed at least 555,000 people worldwide since the outbreak emerged in China last December, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP on Friday.

Nearly 12.3 million cases have been registered in 196 countries and territories.

“Across all walks of life, we are all being tested to the limit,” Tedros said, “from countries where there is exponential growth, to places that are loosening restrictions and now starting to see cases rise.

“Only aggressive action combined with national unity and global solidarity can turn this pandemic around.”
