ICJ to deliver verdict on Jadhav today

As the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at The Hague prepares to deliver its verdict in the Kulbhushan Jadhav case on Wednesday, the government is pinning its hopes on two precedents, both in cases against the United States in 2001 and 2004, when the ICJ ruled for a review and revision of convictions. Indian officials say they hope to see the ICJ adjudge the 2017 trial of Mr. Jadhav similarly, rule the death sentence delivered to the former Indian Naval officer by a Pakistani military court as “illegal”, and order a retrial.
