Pakistan Army Chief To Decide Jadhav's Future

Pakistan Army Chief To Decide Jadhav's Future

General Bajwa, before whom a mercy petition was filed last month, will decide the case on merit, ISPR, the media wing of the Pak army, said in a statement.

In what is claimed by India as a violation of the Vienna Convention, Pakistan turned down all of India's 18 requests seeking consular access to Jadhav. Now, a Pakistani military court has rejected the petition, which too was expected, as it would give full power to Pakistan army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa to decide the next steps.

Following an appeal by India, the International Court of Justice in The Hague has asked Pakistan to hold off the execution of Mr Jadhav till it reached its final verdict.

Jadhav is eligible to appeal for clemency to the Army chief under Pakistan's law, and if his plea is rejected, he can subsequently appeal the Pakistan president for the same.

"A meeting between mother and son is very different to granting consular access, which is any case being litigated by India in the International Court of Justice", it said. Another mercy petition, filed by Jadhav's mother, is being examined by Pakistani authorities, reports said.

Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court in April for his alleged involvement in espionage and terrorist activities. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had said that she had written a "personal letter" to Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz requesting for approval of Avantika's application so that she may travel to Pakistan.

While Pakistan claims that Jadhav was arrested from Balochistan province on 3 March a year ago, India stays firm on their claims that pakistan kidnapped the former navy officer from Iran where he had business interests. India said the former Navy officer was kidnapped from Iran, where he was running a successful business.

Till now, India has not received any information on the status of appeal or the petition given by the mother of Kulbhushan Jadhav.
