Pakistan should follow the decision of International Court of Justice in Kulbhushan Jadhav case: Ministry of External Affairs
New Delhi. India has said that there are many shortcomings in the bill passed by the Parliament of Pakistan to provide alleged legal facilities to Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is lodged in Pakistan’s jail. The neighboring country is running away from the responsibility of implementing the decision of the International Court of Justice.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Arindam Bagchi, in response to a question asked about Jadhav in a regular press conference on Thursday, said that the Parliament of the neighboring country has legalized the old ordinance through the ‘Review and Reconsideration Bill-2020’, in which many There were drawbacks. Its provisions do not ensure a process of facilitating review and review in Jadhav’s case, as was held in the International Court of Justice’s decision.
The spokesperson said the International Court of Justice had ruled that the Pakistan government was violating international obligations by not allowing Jadhav to meet Indian diplomats.
The spokesman said that Pakistan’s bill provides that the local court will decide whether Jadhav got diplomatic facility or not. This is against the basic principles of law. Local courts cannot decide whether a country is complying with its obligations with respect to international law. Not only this, according to the bill, only the local court will hear the appeal against the decision of the International Court of Justice.
Bagchi said India urges Pakistan to take appropriate measures to address the deficiencies in the Bill and implement the decision of the International Court of Justice in word and spirit.
