UN world court to rule today on Indian spy case
The UN’s top court will rule Thursday on an urgent bid by India to stop Pakistan from carrying out a death sentence on one of its nationals convicted of spying. In an emergency hearing swiftly organised on Monday, lawyers for New Delhi had urged the International Court of Justice to halt the execution of Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav. Jadhav was arrested fromBalochistan last year and Pakistani officials claim he has confessed to spying for Indian intelligence services. He was convicted by a court martial and sentenced to death. The UN tribunal, based in The Hague, said in a statement it “will deliver its order on the request for the indication of provisional measures made by India in the Jadhav Case tomorrow on Thursday 18 May 2017”. The president of the court, Ronny Abraham, will read out the decision at midday. The case, a rare foray for the two nations into the international courts, has highlighted the recent sharp uptick in tensions between the two nuclear-armed rivals. India has denied Jadhav was a spy, and on Monday accused Pakistan of “egregious violations of the Vienna convention” by denying him access to legal counsel and consular visits, and refusing to reveal the charge sheet against him. Jadhav was “an innocent Indian national, who, incarcerated in Pakistan for more than a year on concocted charges ... has been held incommunicado... and faces imminent execution,” Indian lawyer Deepak Mittal said.
