Petition seeking immediate execution of Jadhav filed in Pak Supreme Court


May 28 , Sunday : A petition for the immediate execution of former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav has been filed in the Supreme Court of Pakistan on Saturday.

Muzamil Ali, who is a lawyer by profession registered an application through Advocate Farooq Naek – a leader of opposition Pakistan People’s Party and former Senate chairman.

According to Pakistan’s “The Nation ” report , the applicant said, ‘Kulbhushan Jadhav has pleaded guilty in front of military courts and has not appealed against his death penalty hence he should be hanged immediately.’ Apart from that the applicant also reportedly challenged the validity of the International Court of Justice stay on Jadhav’s execution and said, “Pakistan is free to act according to its domestic law.”

As per news portal , Pakistan Supreme Court  has rejected the plea filed by Advocate Farooq Naek.

Earlier , The International Court of Justice (ICJ)  on May 18 had stayed the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav which was sentenced by Pakistan army court over alleged  spying and subversive activities.

ICJ’s verdict gave relief to Jadhav’s family and whole India.
