The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will resume hearing the case of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav at The Hague today (Monday).
The world court has set a timetable for public hearings from February 18 to 21 in The Hague. India will argue first in the hearing today while Pakistan will make its closing submissions on Thursday. It is expected that the ICJ decision will be delivered by summer this year.
Last week, Pakistan presented a fact sheet with evidence obtained from Jadhav after his arrest and during the criminal process.
Jadhav was captured in Balochistan in March 2016 and later confessed to his association with Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and his involvement in espionage and fomenting terrorism in Pakistan.
On May 18, 2018, the ICJ through an interim order stayed Jadhav’s execution until a final decision in the proceedings.
