HAGUE: The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will rule today (Thursday) on an urgent bid by India to stop Pakistan from carrying out a death sentence on its spy Kulbushan Jadhav. In the hearing on Monday, lawyers for New Delhi had urged the UN court to halt Jadhav’s execution.
Jadhav was arrested in Balochistan, Pakistan last year, who later confessed to espionage and terror activities in Pakistan. He was convicted by a court martial and sentenced to death. The UN tribunal, based in The Hague, said in a statement it “will deliver its order on the request for the indication of provisional measures made by India in the Jadhav Case (India v. Pakistan), tomorrow on Thursday 18 May 2017”.
