United Nations orders Pakistan not to execute Indian man accused of spying

Pakistan's advisor to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said his country would form a new team of lawyers to fight Kulbhushan Jadhav case at the ICJ, according to a report by Pakistani's The Nation.

Sixty-one-year-old Salve is one of India's most expensive lawyers took up the case at just 1 rupee and represented Jadhav in The Hague.

Shaiq Usmani, a retired judge of Pakistan's Supreme Court, told the media that Jadhav's case will go on in Pakistan until the ICJ gives it final decision.

Earlier Sushma Swaraj while reacting on the order said, "The ICJ order has come as a great relief to the family of Kulbhushan Jadhav and people of India".

The International Court in its order also said that rights invoked by India under the Vienna Convention are plausible.

India had dragged Pakistan to the ICJ on May 8 for refusing consular access to Jadhav and for violating the Vienna Convention on consular relations.

Hailing the verdict, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi said it is a victory for India's stand. The ICJ also said that its ruling is binding. "Hence this stay order".

FCC moves forward with plan to scrap net neutrality protections
How you use the internet and what you pay for speed and some say maybe even your favorite content - is up for debate again. The headline on the May 6 news article "FCC chief typifies bureaucracy at work in Trump's Washington" gave away the focus.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on Thursday ordered Pakistan to stay the execution of Yadav convicted of spying.

Jadhav was reportedly arrested from Pakistan's Balochistan province on March 3, 2016. India was able to demonstrate Pakistan's disregard for worldwide conventions and its propensity to undermine the rule of law.

He was arrested previous year and sentenced to death by Pakistan's military court of espionage and sabotage activities against Pakistan.

Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq said on Friday that Indian spy Kulbushan Jadhav's issue should not be politicized.

In 1998, a Paraguayan man was executed for murder in Virginia despite the global court's order urging the United States to halt his execution in a similar case involving the right to consular access.

Referring to Osama Bin Laden's compound in the Pakistan military academy, Mengal called upon the worldwide community to take action against Pakistan which is promoting religious terrorism across the world and the terrorists who are operating under the patronage of Pakistan intelligence agencies.

The court, formally known as the International Court of Justice (ICJ), is the top United Nations legal body for hearing disputes between states and its rulings are binding - though not enforceable and occasionally flouted.
