Kulbhushan Jadhav case at ICJ: Pakistan parliamentary panel unhappy with govt response

Shoaib has admitted that the ex-Indian Navy officer was captured in Iran.

In the International Court of Justice, Pakistan has said that its security forces arrested Jadhav from Balochistan on March 3 a year ago after he entered from Iran.

India has maintained that Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested by Pakistani agencies from Chabahar in Iran.

According to the former general, "They (Indian Army) do such disgraceful things and don't understand that these tactics won't help them", adding that the unedited versions of his interviews with the Pakistani media were readily available on the internet which establish only one thing that he, time and again, had said that Jadhav was apprehended inside Pakistan.

The Express Tribune, citing sources, reported that the Pakistan Foreign Office has sent a letter to the Hague based ICJ's registrar, expressing Islamabad's desire for a quick hearing, preferably over the next few weeks.

The request was made in view of the upcoming elections for ICJ judges, scheduled to be held in November.

India on May 8 had moved the ICJ against the death penalty handed down to Jadhav by a Pakistani military court.

A court in Pakistan on Wednesday ordered the release of 350 Indian fishermen, who were put behind the bars for crossing global waters, IANS said in a report.

Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua and Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf testified before the committee.

"The government was not prepared to brief the members properly over the issue", he said, adding that the government had assured them of satisfactory replies to their queries at the next meeting of the committee. The federal government, however, has not taken any decision about replacing attorney Khawar Quraishi.

India had instituted proceedings against Pakistan for allegedly violating Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations by denying consular access to Jadhav, who has been sentenced to death for espionage and terrorism.

Pakistan Bar Council's (PBC) executive member Raheel Kamran Sheikh expressed concern over Pakistan's dismal success rate in worldwide arbitration at just two per cent.

"We are in no hurry to execute him [Jadhav] as he is making more disclosures", he claimed.

Having lost the first round in the global court, Pakistan had last Friday filed a plea for the ICJ to rehear the case within six weeks, after the Nawaz Sharif government was slammed by the opposition for "mishandling" the case.
