Khudayar Mohla –

ISLAMABAD, (TLTP): Foreign Office on Sunday dismissed as “inaccurate and baseless” the statements made by India’s legal counsel in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case

Responding to journalists, Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said that Pakistan has fully complied with the International Court of Justice’s judgment in Kulbhushan Jadhav case. She said Pakistan remains committed to continue doing so as the case proceeds further.

She firmly rejected as inaccurate and contrary to facts the Indian legal counsel Harish Salve’s statements that Pakistan has not complied with the ICJ’s judgment in the case.

Aisha Farooqui said Pakistan has granted India consular access to Jadhav and is processing measures for effective review and reconsideration as per the guidelines provided by ICJ in its judgment. The spokesperson said Pakistan, being a responsible state abides by all its international obligations.

Last year in July, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) had issued its verdict in Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case and rejected most of the remedies sought by India. The court, in its verdict, rejected a number of Indian demands including annulment of military court decision convicting Jadhav, his release and safe passage to India.

The court, however, directed Pakistan to provide effective review and reconsideration of his conviction and sentences according to its own justice system.
