On Thursday India has pressed for having an Indian lawyer to represent Kulbhushan Jadhav in the court of Pakistan when it takes up his review petition against his death sentence.
Anurag Srivastava the spokesperson of external affair ministry said India is in touch with Pakistan through diplomatic channels on the issue relating to Jadhav.
Anurag Srivastava commented and said,
“For a free and fair trial in keeping with the letter and spirit of ICJ judgement, we have asked for Jadhav to be represented by an Indian lawyer. However, Pakistan has to first address the core issues- giving copies of relevant documents of the case and providing unimpeded consular access to Jadhav”.
In April 2017 The retired Indian Navy officer Jadhav who is fifty year old was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of espionage and terrorism.
