DG ISPR hails ICJ verdict in Kulbhushan Jadhav case as 'success for Pakistan'
RAWALPINDI - The Director-General of Inter-Services Public Relations, Major General Asif Ghafoor hailed the International Court of Justice verdict in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case as a success for Pakistan, saying the court rejected Indian appeals.

Talking to a private news channel after the decision on Wednesday, the military's spokesman said that the International Court of Justice accepted Pakistan's version on Kulbhushan Jadhav.

The spokesman elaborated that India appealed release of Jadhav and the annulment of the sentence given by the military court and both the pleas were rejected.

'Pakistan had submitted that KulBhushan was a serving Navy officer which was accepted by the international court,' said the official.

The ISPR DG said India had filed a mercy petition for Jadhav, which was sent to the Chief of Army Staff (COAS). However, India had taken up the case with the ICJ and the COAS did not comment on it.

He said Pakistan had permitted the family of Jadhav to meet him on

humanitarian grounds and as a goodwill gesture, though there was nothing

mentioned in that regard in the Vienna Convention.

Today was another 27th February for India when the Pakistan Air Force

pilots had shot down two Indian fighter jets while violating Pakistani airspace,

he added.

The spokesman explained that India had raised five key points in its appeal, however, the UN's judicial arm did not invalidate the sentence awarded by the military courts.

Earlier, the international court accepted Pakistan's view that the commander is a serving Indian Navy officer who came to Pakistan on fake documents.

The court also rejected India's plea to acquit and extradite Jadhav, though asked Pakistan to give consular access to the spy; ICJ also directed that Jadhav would stay in Pakistan.
