ICJ order diplomatic victory for India but Kulbhushan Jadhav’s life still under threat in Pakistan

Relief and diplomatic victory are great ways for India’s interim order of an international court on Thursday’s ban on Pakistan to execute an alleged Indian spy until the verdict is reached.
In addition, it is likely to strengthen the position of the Narendra Modi government that will do everything possible to secure the release of former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav the intervention of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) The Hague.
The 46-year-old man was arrested in Balochistan in March 2016 and a Pakistani military court convicted of espionage and sabotage in April. India has warned that it would be considered premeditated murder if Pakistan was to be an innocent man.
“The ICJ order was a great relief to the Kulbhushan Jadhav family and the people of India,” Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said. India marked the diplomatic point against its rivals, but the danger to life Jadhav has not diminished, while Pakistan could reject the order of the court of the UN.
Pakistan remained defiant and is likely to challenge the ICC’s national security competence.
“As for Pakistan, the decision not to change the status of the Jadhav case in any way,” said the country’s attorney general.
Jadhav was sentenced to death for “espionage and terrorism” and has enough time to “ask for clemency”. “We are determined to insist on this matter to its logical end,” he said.
There is a fear that Pakistan may suspend Jadhav before the ICJ pronounces its verdict, although Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Gopal Baglay said the international court order was “legally binding.”
“The order of the ICJ is clear and unequivocal positive,” he said.
