Jadhav's meeting with family not the last, clarifies Pakistan

Jadhav's meeting with family not the last, clarifies Pakistan”

"They staged drama of a meeting, which I can say was just a sham".

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested Jadhav from its restive Balochistan province after he reportedly entered from Iran.

India, however, claims that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Indian Navy.

Pakistani authorities allowed an Indian national sentenced to death for spying to see his family for the first time since his arrest, a rare and highly-anticipated meeting arranged amid tight security in Islamabad.

The Pakistan Foreign Office released photos of Jadhav, who is on death row, meeting his family after a gap of 22 months. We extended the meeting by 10 minutes on the request of Jadhav's family.

Dismissing India's stance on Jadhav, Pakistan submitted its reply to the ICJ in the case on December 13.

Earlier, Foreign Office Spokesperson Mohammed Faisal tweeted a picture of Jadhav's mother Avanti and his wife seated ahead of the meeting, adding they were "sitting comfortably in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Pakistan".

The development came hours after Pakistan allowed convicted Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife to meet him in Islamabad, in what the Foreign Ministry said was a "humanitarian gesture".

The meeting lasted about 40 minutes and took place at the Foreign Ministry shortly after Jadhav's family members landed in Islamabad, officials said. "India should take up Jadhav's case even more forcefully while the global community should put pressure on Pakistan and expose them", she said.

Jadhav was found guilty in a closed trial by a military court and sentenced to death.

In his petition, which was seen by The Associated Press, Jadhav says "I feel very shamed and I genuinely seek pardon of the acts and sins and crimes I have committed here against the nation and the people of Pakistan".

Islamabad has repeatedly refused New Delhi consular access to Jadhav on the grounds that the bilateral agreement does not apply to spies.

Pakistani officials insist Jadhav has confessed before the country's military court that he was tasked by the Indian intelligence agency to "plan, coordinate and organize espionage, terrorist and sabotage activities" against Pakistan.

He said Jadhav was carrying a fake passport when he was captured.

Before the meeting, the security check of the family was conducted. They believe that the move will not improve Pakistan's legal defence at the ICJ but it is good for the country's image.
