The International Court of Justice will announce its verdict on Thursday on India’s appeal against the death sentence awarded by a Pakistani Military Court to Indian National Kulbhushan Jhadav on charges of espionage and subversive activities.
The verdict is set to be announced at 3:30 P.M IST, ICJ said in a press release posted on twitter.
Pakistan has said that India has no right to invoke the jurisdiction of the court because the Vienna Convention does not provide for matter relating to spies, terrorists and those who indulge in espionage.
On May 8, India moved the ICJ against the death penalty handed down to Jhadav by a Pakistan military court, alleging violation of Vienna Convention on Consular relations.
After hearing the arguments of both sides, the court said it will issue it’s order on India’s request for provisional measures “as soon as possible”
