On Monday high court of Islamabad ordered the government of Pakistan to give another chance to India to appoint a lawyer for Kulbhushan Jhadav to file a review Petition against his conviction. For alleged spying, he is facing a death sentence. Islamabad has not yet reached out to New Delhi.
“We haven’t received any communication from Pakistan on Kulbhushan Jadhav case. Pakistan needs to provide unhindered, unimpeded consular access to him,” Anurag Srivastava said, spokesperson of external affair ministry saif on Thursday.
Recently India has said that Pakistan has blocked all the efforts to seek remedies in the case of Jadhav, who is facing charges of spy and was attested in 2016 by the Pakistani security agencies in Balochistan.
A two-judge bench of Islamabad high court also directed the Pakistan government to inform Jadhav, 50 about his rights under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the International Court of Justice’s (ICJ) order of 2019 staying his execution and calling for a review of his conviction.
