India Can’t Get Consular Access Without Confirming Jadhav’s Nationality: Pakistan

Published

on

Pakistan’s counsel asserted that ICJ should dismiss the Indian petition as the case does not engage the Vienna Convention since New Delhi failed to establish that Jadhav is an Indian national, says Pakistani counsel.

Kulbhushan Jadhav Case: Pakistan To File Second Memorial Against India in the ICJ

 

On Tuesday, Pakistan presented its side and maintained that India has not responded to several key questions raised by Islamabad. India will present its concluding arguments today as it presented its case first on Monday.

English Queen’s Counsel Khawar Qureshi while speaking to media said: “You heard what I said, you can read my arguments. The position is clear; it’s India that needs to answer the questions, not Pakistan. It’s India that has behaved illegally, not Pakistan.”

“I hope even tomorrow India might bring itself to provide answers to these various questions. It is still not too late. But if it doesn’t, we are waiting to see that the court does,” Qureshi added.

Qureshi while presenting his arguments before ICJ said:” the case does not engage the Vienna Convention as India failed to establish that Jadhav is it’s national”. Declaring that “a decision regarding Jadhav’s nationality has not yet been made”, Qureshi said, “India did not state whether he is Kulbushan Jadhav or Hussain Mubarak Patel.” He also questioned: “How can India demand consular access when it did not confirm Jadhav’s nationality?”

Qureshi also gave an electronic presentation in the world court and presented excerpts from Indian journalists’ Karan Thapar and Parween Swami’s reports published in April 2017 and January 2018. In his concluding remarks, Qureshi maintained that the ICJ should dismiss the Indian petition as the case is out of the jurisdiction of the Vienna Convention.
