ICJ to give verdict in Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case today


The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will give its much-awaited verdict on July 17 (Wednesday) in relation to the Indian Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav.

Jadhav currently in the custody of Pakistan’s security forces is accused of espionage in Balochistan and terrorism – both the charges are punishable by death under the law of the land.

To attend the hearing, Pakistani delegation under Attorney General Pakistan Anwar Mansoor reached Holland a day earlier. The delegation also includes Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal.

A 15-member full bench of the ICJ will read the verdict in the case. The bench includes one ad-hoc Pakistani judge and a permanent Indian judge.
