Govt moves IHC for appointment of legal representative for Kulbhushan Jadhav


Islamabad: The federal government has contacted the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday to appoint the legal representative of the Indian spy and the agent of Kulbhushan Jadhav of the Research and Analysis Department (RAW) of the Intelligence Agency (RAW).

According to the details, the federation formed through the General Branch of the Secretary of Defense and Judge Advocates GHQ has become a party.

The petition stated that Kulbhushan, who was involved in several terrorist activities in Pakistan, has refused to file plea against his sentence. The agent cannot appoint lawyer in Pakistan without assistance from India, it read.

What I want to mention here is that the government has submitted a petition in accordance with the Presidential Decree.

Earlier, Pakistan had decided to allow the third consul to enter Kulbushan Jadaf.

On July 16, 2010, Indian Charge d’affaires reached the Foreign Office as New Delhi accepted Pakistan’s offer to give second consular access to Jadhav. The place where the agent was kept had been declared as sub-jail.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said that Pakistan had earlier provided the first consular channel under the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations on September 2 last year. She said that the parents of Commander Jadav were also allowed to see him on December 25, 2017.

Aisha Farooqui stated that the two consular officers of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad have obtained unimpeded consular access from Commander Jadav.
