Jadhav guilty of crimes against Pak, appreciate ICJ’s decision to not acquit, release and return him: Imran Khan

A day after International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled that Pakistan must review the death sentence for Kulbhushan Jadhav, Pakistan Prime Minister on Thursday welcomed the court’s decision not to set him free.

In a tweet, Khan said that he is guilty of crimes against people of Pakistan.

The former Indian Navy officer was sentenced by a Pakistani military court on charges of “espionage and terrorism”.

The ICJ affirmed the former Indian Navy officer’s right to consular access and slammed Pakistan for denying this. And made it clear that Jadhav’s death sentence should remain suspended until Pakistan effectively reviews and reconsiders the conviction and sentence in the light of its breach of Article 36 — that is denial of consular access and notification.
