In July this year, the ICJ, by a vote of 15-1 in the Jadhav case, upheld India's claim that Pakistan is in egregious violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations on several counts.
Jadhav, 49, was purportedly "arrested" from Balochistan by Pakistani security forces on March 3, 2016, after he allegedly entered the country from Iran as claimed by Islamabad.
A day before she died, Sushma talked to Salve and told him to come and take his fees of Rs 1 for the Jadhav case. However, just 10 minutes later, she suffered a cardiac arrest.
The ICJ in July had asked Pakistan to comply with the Vienna Conventions and provide consular access to Jadhav and to ensure "effective review and reconsideration of his conviction and sentences".
Pakistan on Sunday announced it will grant consular access to the retired Indian Navy officer, who was sentenced to death by a Pakistan military court on the basis of extracted confession of “espionage and terrorism” after a closed trial in April 2017.
In a major win for India, the world court had continued its stay on the execution of the Indian national, held in a Pakistani jail on allegations of spying and found that Pakistan breached the Vienna Convention by not giving him consular access.
Hailing the ICJ's decision, he called upon Pakistan to release and repatriate Jadhav. Amid claps and thumping of desks by fellow parliamentarians, Jaishankar said the government welcomes the world court's verdict.
India put intense diplomatic pressure on Pakistan through numerous diplomatic notes and demarches and letter by the External Affairs Minister (EAM) over a sustained period of time for consular access and release of Jadhav, as per government sources.
In a global victory for India and major setback for Pakistan, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on wednesday stayed the death sentence of Kulbhushan Jadhav.
Jadhav, a 49-year-old former Naval officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on April 11, 2017, on alleged charges of espionage and terrorism. Following this, India had approached the ICJ against Pakistan "for egregious violations of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, 1963" in the matter.
