Great win for India, ICJ stays Jadhav’s execution for now

A 11-judge bench of the International Court of Justice today stayed the execution of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav by Pakistani military court until further notice, while observing that prima facie the Vienna Convention will apply in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case.

“India should be given consular access as per Vienna Convention,” ICJ said.

It also reminded Pakistan that this order is legally binding upon them.

The court was pronouncing its verdict on India’s plea seeking provisional measures restraining the execution of Jadhav by Pakistan. India had, last Monday, moved the court seeking immediate measures by the top court, in effect a stay, against the death sentence.
