Pakistan nominates ex-CJP as ad-hoc judge in Jadhav case

Pakistan nominates ex-CJP as ad-hoc judge in Jadhav case”

India then instituted proceedings against Pakistan at ICJ, accusing Pakistan of "egregious violations of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations" in the matter of the detention and trial of an Indian national, Mr. Kulbhushan Sudhir Jadhav. Judge ad hoc has the same authority on the Court as any of the 15 members of the ICJ. Since India and Pakistan are involved in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, Pakistan was allowed to carry this appointment.

Pakistani security agencies on March 24, 2016 apprehended an "on-duty RAW agent" from Balochistan. He later confessed to being associated with India's Research and Analysis Wing, and his involvement in espionage and fomenting terrorism in Pakistan. Pakistan's military court country sentenced him to death on April 10, 017. The military court of appeal has already rejected Jadhav's appeal against the death penalty.

Jadhav has filed a mercy petition to Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, to spare his life on "compassionate grounds".

Jillani served as a judge in the Supreme Court during 2004-13 and as the chief justice from December 2013 to July 2014.

One of his celebrated judgements came in 2002, while Justice Jillani was in the Lahore High Court, in which he held a woman's right to marry of her own volition was a fundamental right that no one could infringe upon.

Pakistan has also challenged the jurisdiction of the ICJ regarding conviction of Kulbhushan Jadhav after the court observed that turning down the request for consular access was a denial of right.

India has submitted its 22-page written response in the ICJ while Pakistan will submit its reply by December 13.
