ICJ uphold India’s plea on Jadhav, Pakistan must grant consular access

ICJ upheld India’s plea to prevents Pakistan from carrying out the execution of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav. Mr. Jadhav, a former naval officer from India. ICJ judges clear out that it has a complete jurisdiction over this case. The ICJ has rejected Pakistan’s objections regarding the urgency of the matter. India can enjoy the victory over issue of jurisdiction. Article I of the Optional Protocol to the Vienna Convention, which says interpretation of convention is topic having complete jurisdiction under the ICJ. Pakistan is now under an obligation to grant consular access to Mr. Jadhav.

Pakistan theoretically can ignore ICJ’s order and punish Mr. Jadhav with death sentence but Such a course of action would undermine its international credibility.
