The International Court of Justice (ICJ) will decide on Wednesday on India’s petition against the sentencing of Kulbhushan Jadhav, a former Indian navy officer on a death row in Pakistan on espionage charges.
Jadhav was arrested in 2016 when he was charged with trying to create anarchy in Pakistan. It was not until a year later when “terrorism” charges were added and he was sentenced to death.
India approached the ICJ, which immediately postponed his execution.
A meeting of the court in February failed to come to a decision but sharply escalated tensions between India and Pakistan.
