As the International Court of Justice (ICJ) resumed hearing in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, India today filed its written pleadings, technically known as memorial.
In its memorials,New Delhi has urged the ICJ to declare Pakistan as violator of international law for sentencing Jadhav to death without providing him fare chance of natural justice.
A senior official of the External Affairs Ministry will hand over the memorial.
“India has, today, submitted its Memorial (written pleadings) to the International Court of Justice in the Jadhav case involving egregious violation of Vienna Convention on Consular Relations 1963 by Pakistan. This is in furtherance of our Application filed before the Court on May 8, 2017.” a press statement issued by the MEA said.
A Pakistan military court had declared Jadhav guilty of espionage and subversive activites in a trial in April this year.
India had contested the court verdict expressing concerns that Pakistani military can execute Jadhav even before the court gave its judgement.
In its last hearing on May 18, the ICJ had directed Pakistan to not execute Jadhav before the case is decided.
India and Pakistan were given time by the ICJ to submit their memorials the top UN court.
