Talking to newsmen after a meeting with Attorney General Ashtar Ausaf Ali in capital, he remarked that the commander Jadhav case was a very clear case.
‘Commander Jadhav can never be released or acquitted. You are making something out of nothing’ he affirmed.
Qureshi also advised the media officials to “behave responsibly” and “give Pakistani officials the respect they deserve.”
The counsel expressed that the foreign office will be giving a much more detailed press statement soon.
Earlier, the lawyer who was lampooned for not being able to defend Pakistan at ICJ had remarked that India wrongly claimed victory after the ICJ temporarily stayed the death sentence of Jadhav. He had explained that the case was more about political point scoring than about the law.
After the ICJ’s decree, it was also murmured that Pakistan’s attorney general Ashtar Ausaf would be appearing before the top court however, no official statement is available right now.
