THE HAGUE: Pakistan on Tuesday submitted its second counter rejoinder before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) pertaining to the case of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.
According to sources in the foreign ministry, this is Pakistan’s first counter argument to India’s reply and overall second rejoinder submitted before the world court by Foreign Office India Director Fareeha Bugti.
Pakistan, in its reply which consists of more than 400 pages and prepared by a team of legal experts headed by the attorney general, has given detailed answers to questions and reservations posed by India.
Pakistan on December 13, 2017, had filed its counter memorial before the ICJ, a world court in The Hague which is looking into the Indian complaint on the conviction of the Indian spy.
It is worth mentioning here that Jadhav was arrested in March 2016 from Balochistan. The in-service Indian navy officer was tried by a military court and sentenced to death after he confessed to be working against China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), creating unrest in Balochistan and parts of Pakistan on orders of the Indian intelligence agency.—NNI
