Nothing new in Pak law on Kulbhushan Jadhav: Ministry of External Affairs

New Delhi, November 18

India is not affected by the Pakistani law designed to implement the International Court of Justice (ICJ) judgment in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said the law only codified the shortcomings of the previous ordinance. He said Pakistan has been denying Jadhav uninterrupted and uninterrupted consular access and has failed to create an environment in which a fair trial can take place.

“We have seen reports of Pakistan enacting an earlier ordinance into law which was apparently enacted to implement the ICJ decision. Nothing could have been further from the truth. As stated earlier, the ordinance did not create a mechanism for effective review and reconsideration of Jadhav’s case as mandated under the ICJ judgment,” he said in response to media queries at a joint sitting of Pakistan’s Parliament on Wednesday. .
