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



In response to pleadings filed by India in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, Pakistan has decided to file a counter-memorial in ICJ. In the highly controversial Kulbhushan Jadhav case, Pakistan will file its second counter-memorial in the International Court of Justice at Hague. Kulbhushan Jadhav, the former Indian Navy official was awarded a death sentence by a military court in Pakistan for charges of spying and terrorism.

As reported by The Hindu, Pakistan Prime Minister, Nasirul Mulk was briefed about the pleadings filed by India on April 17. Pakistan will now file the second memorial to represent its case in the International Court of Justice.

Both India and Pakistan were given a timeline to file their pleadings by the ICJ on January 23. Top Attorney Khawar Qureshi briefed the Pakistan PM about the case and pleadings filed by India last week. Khalid Javed Khan, Pakistan’s Attorney General also attended the meeting along with other top officials of Pakistan.

It is highly likely that after this memorial is filed by Pakistan, the ICJ will schedule the hearing of the case. The hearing will most probably take place next year as stated by The Daily. A senior told The Daily that there was no chance that the hearing on the Kulbhushan Jadhav case will be taken up by the ICJ this year itself. He said that the ICJ is already occupied with hearings on other matters till April next year.

In May 2017, India moved to the ICJ to challenge the death sentence awarded to Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistan. On May 18 the ICJ stayed the execution of Kulbhushan Jadhav who is accused of espionage and terrorism. Pakistan claims that Jadhav is an Indian spy sent on a special mission to Pakistan as he is an active naval commander. According to Pakistan, Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested from Balochistan which is a restricted area. Pakistan filed its first counter-memorial on December 13.
