Int’l court halts Pak execution of Indian on spying charge

Int’l court halts Pak execution of Indian on spying charge
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has ordered Pakistan not to carry out the execution of an Indian man convicted of spying while his case is being considered, according to CNN.

Kulbushan Jadhav was arrested in March 2016 "for his involvement in espionage and sabotage activities against Pakistan," and sentenced to death last month.

On May 8, India initiated proceedings at the Hague against its regional rival, accusing Islamabad of "egregious violations of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations" in the sentencing of Jadhav, according to a statement released by the ICJ.

India requested the ICJ order Pakistan not to execute Jadhav until the court can issue a judgment based on India's claims.

The ICJ is the principle judicial arm of the United Nations and settles disputes between member states in accordance with international law.
