f044d04aa3c19aaf0d5f940e798ec47aNEW DELHI : Amid an ongoing legal battle over Kulbhushan Jadhav, Pakistan has now claimed that the alleged Indian spy is providing ‘crucial information’ on recent terrorist attacks in the country.Nafees Zakaria, Pakistan Foreign Office spokersperson, had revealed this to Dawn News, according to news18.com.
Zakaria’s statement came hours after the country’s Attorney General, Ashtar Ausaf, had told the newspaper that Pakistan has enough evidence to prove Jadhav was an “ndian spy”.Ausaf, while refusing to divulge the details, said those evidence would only be presented before the ICJ once it resumes the hearing in Kulbhushan Jadhav case.
Jadhav, 46, was sentenced to death by a Pakistan military court that convicted him of alleged spying and subversive activities. India maintains that he is a retired Indian Navy officer who was kidnapped in Iran and taken to Pakistan, where he has been in custody for more than a year.
On May 18, the International Court of Justice after hearing India’s request to grant consular access to Jadhav and Pakistan’s submission through QC Khawar Qureshi decided that Pakistan should not execute Jadhav till a verdict is delivered by the world court.The ruling triggered criticism of the Pakistan Foreign Office (FO) for its “poor handling” and also for its choice of Qureshi, who represented Pakistan’s case before the ICJ.
Several political analysts and politicians had claimed that the country’s legal counsel was not adequately prepared.Following the verdict, media reports claimed that the Attorney General will represent Pakistan in the Jadhav case at the ICJ after widespread calls for a change in the country’s legal team.
Attorney General Ausaf, however, said that Pakistan would not change but “expand” its legal team at the ICJ.India is being represented by senior advocate Harish Salve who is fighting the case pro bono.
