Pak violated its obligations under Vienna Convention in Jadhav's case: ICJ Prez tells UNGA

Friday, 01 November 2019 | PTI | United Nations

Pakistan violated its obligations under the Vienna Convention in the arrest and detention of Indian  national Kulbhushan Jadhav, International Court of Justice (ICJ)  President Judge Abduylqawi Yusuf told the UN General Assembly here. Jadhav, 49, a retired Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death  by a Pakistani military court on charges of "espionage and terrorism"  after a closed trial in April 2017. India has maintained that Jadhav  was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring  from the Navy. Presenting the report of the International Court of Justice to the 193-member General Assembly on Wednesday, Yusuf said in its judgement of July 17 the principal judicial organ of the United Nations found that Pakistan had violated its obligations under Article 36 of the  Vienna  convention and that appropriate remedies were due in this case."
