Pakistan displaying Jadhav's passport led to ICJ's rejection of their argument about not knowing Jadhav's nationality
Harish Salve, who presented Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case on India’s behalf before the ICJ thanked the country for the manner in which it intervened in the case. “It protected Kulbhushan Jadhav from being executed, in a hearing which was put together in a matter of days. Pakistan repeatedly played slides of what it claimed was passport it had recovered from Jadhav. Not only did the Court get drawn into it, this displaying the passport led to the court rejecting Pakistan's argument that Jadhav's nationality was uncertain,” he said.
Salve added that with the ICJ directing that a fair trial be held in accordance with Pakistan’s constitution, if the case goes back to the military court where outside lawyers are not allowed, it won’t meet standards.
