Pakistan to amend Army Act to allow Kulbhushan Jadhav right to appeal against conviction


Islamabad: an informed diplomat told the media on Wednesday that the Pakistani government had prepared a draft amendment to the land law to give Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav the right to appeal against his conviction in a civil court.

The changes to the army law, however, only apply to the judgment of the International Court of Justice. The purpose of the change is to determine the legal process for bringing a decision from a military court.

Currently, cases that are tried by military courts and the Army Act prohibit such persons or groups from appealing and seeking justice from civil courts.

In its judgment against the Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, the International Court of Justice rejected most of the remedies that India was looking for.

However, the court ordered Pakistan to effectively review and reconsider its convictions and convictions in accordance with its own legal system.

Judge Abduylqawi Yusuf, President of the International Court of Justice, appreciated Pakistan’s role in the full implementation of the International Court of Justice judgment on July 17 at the end of October.

In a statement by Abduylqawi Yusuf, President of the International Court of Justice, he stated that Pakistan had implemented the judgment of the International Court of Justice on 17 July in letter and in spirit.

The President said: “The communication received by the Court on 1 August 2019 stated that the Indian spy Kurbshan Jadav had been immediately informed of his rights under the Vienna Convention and had invited the Indian High Commission. The consulate in Islamabad will visit him on 2 August 2019. ”

International Court of Justice rejects India’s request to release Jadaf

On July 17, the International Court of Justice rejected the legal remedies demanded by India, including the abolition of sentencing by the Kulbhushan Jadhav military court, the release of him and the safe passage of India.

Judge Abdulqavi Ahmed Yousaf, the judge who announced the verdict, told Pakistan to review the death penalty of a suspected Indian spy and said Islamabad had violated his right to consular visits. .

In the verdict, the court rejected many of India’s demands, including the abolition of the military court over the sentencing of Jadav, the release of Jadaf and the safe passage of India.

Internationally Pakistan deprived India of its ties and contacts with Kulbuschan Jadav, visited him and arranged its legal representation, thereby breaching its obligations under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

The Hague Tribunal ordered “effective review and reconsideration of the sentencing and sentencing of Kulbhushan Jadhav”. The Indian naval officer was arrested in March 2016 in Baluzhi province, Pakistan.

The judge stated that Pakistan and India have signed the Vienna Convention.

It considered that “the continuation of the death penalty is a necessary condition for an effective review and reconsideration of the conviction and conviction of Mr Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav.”

The court ordered the transfer of Indian spies to India when it ruled that Jadhav was guilty of terrorist activities in Pakistan. It stipulated that Kulbhushan Jadhav would be detained in Pakistan.

The Pakistani team led by the Minister of Justice was present in court. The team also includes Dr. Mohamed Faisal, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Dr. Muhammad Faisal said on July 12 that Pakistan had a legal battle in the case of the Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadav and hoped the International Court of Justice (ICJ) would suit Islamabad’s judgment.

The FO spokesperson spoke with Dunya News and stated that Pakistan will accept the court’s decision and negotiate the implementation process with the lawyer. He added that India could not provide any evidence about Kurbuchan Yadav.

Dr. Mohamed Faisal also told us that the full timetable for Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to the United States will soon be announced. Good relations with Washington are in Pakistan’s interest, and contracts signed in the United States will benefit ordinary people.

The government arrested him in Baluzhi province for being accused of terrorism and secretly overseeing the Indian Ministry of Investigation and Analysis (RAW).
