10 submissions Pakistan made in Kulbhushan Jadhav\'s case at ICJ

Vienna: India and Pakistan on Monday presented their arguments at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the Kulbushan Jadhav's case with New Delhi invoking the court's jurisdiction to see that the death sentence against him was annulled immediately.

Here is what Pakistan submitted before the court:

1/ Vienna Convention provisions on consular access were not intended for a "spy" involved in terror activities.

2/ India's application on Jadhav must be dismissed on three counts - there is no agency, relief sought is manifestly unavailable and the jurisdiction is limited.

3/ Its application on Kulbhushan Jadhav is unnecessary and misconceived.

4/ India hasn't been able to prove that Jadhav is an Indian national or he is not a terrorist.

5/ India has not been able to give an explanation for Jadhav's passport which bears a Muslim name.

6/ Jadhav was given a fair trial and nothing can be further from truth.

7/ India's allegation that Jadhav was kidnapped from Iran is far fetched.

8/ India was using the court as the "scene of political theatre" but "we will not respond in kind".

9/ There has been deafening silence and no response from India on Pakistan's accusations on Jadhav.

10/ ICJ is not a criminal court of appeal nor does it exercise criminal jurisdiction.
