ISLAMABAD : Responding to media queries regarding on the case of Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing’s (RAW) agent, Kulbushan Jadhav, Foreign Office spokesperson said that Pakistan has invited India to file review and reconsideration petition after refusal by the commander. The spokesperson elaborated that mercy petition in commander Jadhav case is a separate process that has nothing to do with the review and reconsideration. The review and reconsideration petition can be filed by (a) commander Jadhav himself, (b) legally authorized representative, or (c) a consular officer of the Indian High Commission. While commander Jadhav’s mercy petition is still pending, India is invited to file review and reconsideration petition to give effect to the judgment of the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The foregoing has been conveyed to India through diplomatic channels as well. Earlier, Pakistan had announced to grant second consular access to retired Indian Navy officer and spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was found involved in several terrorist activities in Pakistan. Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, Additional Attorney General Ahmed Irfan said Jadhav was offered to meet his father on humanitarian grounds, adding that the Indian spy has refused to file review petition against his sentence. Pakistan has taken all the steps regarding Kulbhushan case in the light of ICJ decision. Our law allows to review the decision but Kulbhushan has refused to avail this right, he told. Ahmed Irfan further said that Pakistan is well informed about its duties and ready to act as per ICJ instructions.
