ICJ stays Kulbhushan Jhadav's hanging, says prima facie Vienna Convention will apply
An 11-judge bench of the International Court of Justice on Thursday ruled that prima facie Vienna Convention will apply in the Kulbhushan Jhadav case.

India had moved the ICJ last Monday seeking relief from the top court in Hague, Netherlands after Pakistan had awarded death sentence to ex-Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jhadav on charges of spying.

ICJ judge Ronny Abraham while reading out the judgment said that India should have been given consular access as per Vienna Convention. The court said that both India and Pakistan had agreed that Jhadav was indeed an Indian citizen.

ICJ has stayed the death sentence given to Kulbhushan Jhadav by Pakistani military court until further notice. The ICJ said that it is appropriate to say that Pakistan shall take all necessary measures to ensure that Jhadav is not executed pending final decision.

The ICJ judge also said that the circumstances of Jhadav's arrest remain disputed.
