THE HAGUE: Pakistan on Tuesday is responding to India’s arguments into the Indian Spy Kulbhushan Jadhav case, at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
As soon the hearing resumed today, Pakistan submitted a request for the appointment of a new judge as ad hoc judge Tasadduq Hussain Jilani fell ill a day earlier.
However, the ICJ allowed Pakistan to present its arguments without the ad hoc judge.
Currently Khawar Qureshi is preening Pakistan’s case in front of the ICJ.
Presenting his remarks earlier in the hearing, the Attorney General Anwar Mansoor Khan Kulbhushan, a serving Indian Navy officer was involved in carrying out terror activities to destabilise Pakistan.
“Jadhav confessed his involvement in terror activities and espionage within Pakistan,” he said.
He said Kulbhushan Jadhav arrest is clear evidence of India’s involvement in distributing peace of its neighbouring countries.
India sent Jadhav to sabotage the China Economic Pakistan Corridor (CPEC), Khan said.
The four days hearing of the case will continue till Thursday and the court is expected to announce its judgement by the summer this year.
The Indian side in its arguments on Monday said that Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav is an innocent businessman and he was entitled to obtain consular access.
India asked the ICJ to order the release of Jadhav. However, it failed to provide evidence in this regard.
On the other hand, Pakistan pointed to evidence obtained from Commander Jadhav after his arrest, and during the criminal process leading to his conviction as amply demonstrating his activities in fomenting terrorism and engaging in espionage within Pakistan.
Meanwhile, the Foreign Office had said India failed to submit any new statement before the ICJ in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case.
The FO said India even could not explain that how Kulbhushan Jadhav managed to get the passport and travel at least 17 times to Delhi.
