Kulbhushan Jadhav Case: India Says Pakistan Blocked All Legal Access To Convict
India had requested Pakistan twelve times for consular access but was denied.
India has said that Pakistan has blocked all avenues for an effective review of the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav. Jadhav has been sentenced to death for his alleged involvement in spying. India has also said that it had requested Pakistan twelve times for consular access to the convict but was never given unhindered and unhinged access to him. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has slammed Pakistan’s “farcical” actions pertaining to the implementation of the International Court of Justice’s judgment.
MEA spokesperson, Anurag Srivastava, told reporters, “[Pakistan] has blocked all the avenues for an effective remedy available for India. Pakistan has completely failed to provide the remedy as directed by the ICJ and India reserves its position in the matter, including its rights to avail of further remedies.” Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested in March 2016 in Balochistan during a counterintelligence raid. In April 2017, Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Field General Court Martial in Pakistan.
