Jadhav case: Pak will get a new team of lawyers, says Aziz

Islamabad: Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz talking to media today stated that Pakistan will get a new team of lawyers to present its case dynamically in the International Court of Justice against letting off alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz told the media that Pakistan’s counsel had courageously presented their stance in the ICJ, which stayed the execution of Jadhav – in a let-down for Islamabad.

According to Radio Pakistan, Aziz maintained that the ICJ did not order Pakistan to provide consular access to Jadhav, but has merely put forward an opinion. Jadhav was sentenced to death by a military court here on charges of espionage and terrorism.

Aziz said a decision to provide consular access to Jadhav is yet to be made. “Pakistan’s security is so important and we have to maintain our fundamental sovereign right,” he said.
