Pak Invites India for Review Petition against Jadhav’s Conviction

 

Islamabad: In a statement, the foreign ministry of Pakistan said that the neighbouring country has invited India on Wednesday to file a ‘review and reconsideration petition’ against a death sentence passed by a military court in 2019 against former Indian Navy Personnel Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav. The charges labelled against Jadhav are of espionage and sabotage.

Terming the Pakistani trial unfair, India had made a representation before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) last year to intervene. The court ordered Islamabad to carry out an “effective review” of the order, saying a “continued stay of execution” was needed for that to happen.

Meanwhile, a statement issued by the foreign ministry of Pakistan said, “While Commander Jadhav’s mercy petition is still pending, India is invited to file review and reconsideration petition to give effect to the Judgment of the International Court of Justice (ICJ).”

Countering the Pakistani statement, a statement issued by India’s external affairs ministry stated, “Despite our repeated requests, Pakistan continues to deny India free and unimpeded access to Jadhav.”
