Pakistan to file counter-memorial on Jadhav's case in ICJ on Jul 17

Pakistan will file its second written reply to India on July 17 in the ICJ on the conviction of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav who was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism, the Foreign Office said today.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on January 23 gave a timeline to both Pakistan and India for filing another round of memorials in the case.

Pakistan's counter-memorial will be in response to pleadings filed by India in the Hague-based ICJ on April 17, Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal told reporters at his weekly press briefing.

Top attorney Khawar Qureshi, who pleaded Pakistan's case at the initial stage, briefed Prime Minister Nasirul Mulk regarding the case last week, the Express Tribune reported.

Attorney General for Pakistan Khalid Javed Khan and other senior officials also attended the meeting.

After the submission of the second counter-memorial, the ICJ will fix the matter for hearing, which is likely to take place next year, the report said.

A senior lawyer, who has expertise in international litigations, told the Pakistani daily that there is no chance of hearing the case this year.

Even the hearing of other matters has already been fixed until March/April next year, therefore, Jadhav case will be listed in summer next year, he added.

India had moved the ICJ in May last year after Jadhav, 48, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism. PTI
