THE HAGUE: The International Court of Justice has asked India to make its submission in the RAW Spy Kulbhushan Jadhav case by September 13. Pakistan has also been asked to complete its submission by December 13.
“India had asked the ICJ to offer it time till December to file pleadings in the Jadhav case, however, “the court has dismissed their request,” Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf Ali was quoted “India had adopted the stance that the matter was one of life and death, but Pakistan had stated that the ICJ is not a court of appeals. The ICJ is supposed to conclude whether or not Jadhav can receive consular access, for which a time period of two to three months is more than enough to file a response,” he further said. Indian Navy officer, Jadhav, had been sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court in April for “involvement in espionage and terrorist activities in Pakistan.”
